Michael Urciuoli is the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Ontario. A Southern California native, he grew up in a typical Catholic family attending Mass on Sundays and playing sports during the week. In June of 1990, under the ministry of Pastor David Rosales, Pastor Mike gave his heart to the Lord at a Sunday night service. Ordained in 1995, he served for three years as the children’s minister at Calvary Chapel of the Chino Valley before being sent out to South Ontario. He and his wife, Terry, have four grown children and seven grandchildren.
The Calvary Chapel Church has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the body of Christ.
We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
We Believe: worship of God should be Spiritual.
We remain flexible and yielded to the
Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We Believe: worship of God should be Inspirational.
We give a great place to music in our worship.
We Believe: worship of God should be Intelligent.
Our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the word of God that He can instruct us on how best to worship Him.
We Believe: worship of God is Fruitful.
We look for His Love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping Him.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christmercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may
be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
2 Cor. 1:3-4
