Who We Are

About Calvary Chapel Ocean Gateway

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.  By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13: 34-35).

We at Calvary Chapel are a community-oriented fellowship of believers in Jesus Christ.  Our deepest desire is to know Christ, and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Our goal is to share Christ’s love with the world.

In existence for over 15 years ago, Calvary Chapel Ocean Gateway has been at its present location at 737 East Main Street, Salisbury, Maryland 21804 since 2004.
