Who We Are

… Calvary Chapel Ventura is a fellowship of likeminded 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.

Pastor Danny Salant

Pastor Danny was saved in 1992 at Calvary Chapel West Covina. He felt the Lord calling him to Calvary Chapel Pasadena in 1993 where he attended for 15 years. He served in the Ushers ministry, in the Worship Ministry, started the College and Career Ministry, as well as being one of the young adult leaders in the Youth Ministry for 6 years.

It was at Calvary Chapel Pasadena that he met his wife Andrea and the two were married on January 20th, 2001. The couple have two children, Annika born in 2004 and Mason born in 2005.

Pastor Danny and his family began attending Calvary Chapel Monrovia in 2009 where they began serving in the children’s ministry. Danny and Andrea ultimately felt the call to serve in the Youth Ministry once again where Danny became the youth pastor in 2013.

Pastor Danny was ordained as an Assistant Pastor overseeing the youth at Calvary Chapel Monrovia on September 24, 2014. He ultimately felt the Lord calling him and his family to the city of Ventura to start a church, but the Lord opened the door to take over an existing work at Calvary Chapel Ventura.

Our Beliefs

... We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all things. Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Hebrews 9:14.

… God the Father is infinite and perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. God the Father is full of mercy and is concerned in the affairs of men; He hears and answers prayer; and He saves from sin and death all those who come to Him through Jesus Christ. Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalms 90:2; 102:27; John 4:24; 1 Timothy 1:17; Titus 1:3.

Our Mission

… Calvary Chapel Ventura is committed to faithfully teaching the Word of God and honoring Him with our time, talents, and treasures.

… We are committed to equipping the saints for the work of ministry, which begins when we interact with a lost and dying world.

… We desire to see God add to His church through outreach and personal evangelism to our family, friends, and community not only through our words, but also by our actions.

… We desire to see the body of Christ grow and mature by the power of the Holy Spirit as we disciple those who are young in the faith.
