Who We Are

Calvary Chapel San Diego has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and to be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.

We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only the over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.

We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ's (agape) love which is greater than any differences we possess - and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christian.

We believe worship of God should be spiritual.
Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.

We believe worship of God should be inspirational.
Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.

We believe worship of God should be intelligent.
Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.

We believe worship of God should be fruitful.
Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have been truly worshiping Him.

Bryan Newberry

Pastor Bryan felt called into the ministry at the age of 15 and was serving as a youth pastor by the age of 19. Three years later, he joined the pastoral staff at Horizon Christian Fellowship. Pastor Bryan started Calvary Chapel San Diego in the South Bay area in 1985, at age 24. He has since been pastoring there with his wife Cheryl and their four children Renee, Nathan, Charles, and Tracy. Calvary Chapel San Diego is a loving community that is thriving on worshiping (in contemporary style music), verse-by-verse teaching of God’s Word and a passionate heart for prayer. Pastor Bryan currently teaches verse-by-verse through the New Testament during two Sunday morning services. He then teaches through the Old Testament Sunday night with a different verse-by-verse message. Pastor Bryan also teaches in-depth studies on Wednesday nights. Calvary Life Today features Pastor Bryan’s “Words of Encouragement” radio ministry. He is also often a key note speaker at men’s retreats, women’s retreats, and junior high and senior high camps. Pastor Bryan has a vision for raising up pastors through Calvary Chapel San Diego’s College of Biblical Leadership, a unique pastoral/discipleship program that emphasizes practical, hands-on involvement in ministry. He also has a vision for missions and frequently holds pastor’s conferences to support churches in Europe and South America.
