Calvary Chapel El Monte is a non-denominational Christian Church affiliated with Calvary Chapels all across the world. If you’d like more information on Calvary Chapel as a whole, you can click HERE.
Calvary Chapel El Monte actually started when Pastor Manny went witnessing on the streets of the city.
When he was young, he grew up in El Monte, but in the sixth grade his father was shot and wounded in a drive-by shooting; he was then forced out of the city of El Monte. At the age of 22 Manny experienced a radical salvation and transformation at Calvary Chapel West Covina (now Calvary Chapel Golden Springs), under Pastor Raul Ries. As Manny served the Lord for the next 13 years, El Monte began to stir in his heart. In 2002 the work began, and it’s been absolutely amazing to see what God has done in so many lives over the years.
We would love to have you visit us! You’ll find the church to be one that is rooted in the Word, loves to worship, and longs to love and live like the Lord Jesus Christ.
Here are a few personal passages for us as a church:

Jeremiah 29:7, “And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the LORD for it; for in its peace you will have peace.”
Revelation 3:7, “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens.’”
