"Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it." - Psalm 127:1

Calvary Chapel El Monte is a non-denominational Christian church affiliated with thousands of other Calvary Chapels all around the world. If you would like more information on Calvary Chapel as a whole, visit the Calvary Chapel Association website.

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. Manny was then taken out of the city. 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 vist us! You’ll find Calvary Chapel El Monte to be one that is rooted in the Word and blessed in heartfelt worship – we want to know the Lord and make Him known. God really is doing an amazing work and building His church! (Psalm 127:1; Matthew 16:18)
