Calvary Church of Santa Ana is a Bible-teaching church centered around the life-changing message of Jesus Christ, passionate about families and making a difference in Orange County, CA, and around the world since 1931.

Calvary not only has a passion for students and kids and provides awesome opportunities for community and growth, but they are passionate about equipping families to be the spiritual leaders in their homes.


About This Organization

Calvary Church of Santa Ana had its first service on Sunday, September 20, 1931, in the Ebell Club on French Street. The church was officially chartered as an independent branch of Calvary Church of Placentia on October 25, 1931, with 203 members.
On February 4, 2018, we began the next chapter of following Jesus together with a new Senior Pastor, Eric Wakeling. From those original members in 1931 to the thousands that call Calvary home today, God continues to build our family and accomplish His purposes here in Orange County and worldwide.
Located in the heart of Orange County, CA, Calvary has a passion for being known as ‘others centered’ and a place for families to call home.
