History

Calvary Chapel Bible College was founded in 1975 as a short, intensive study program. It was developed as a part of Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa’s overall vision to equip the people of God for His service. Over the years, the ministry has grown and developed, through God’s provision, into the college it is today, offering an Associate’s Degree in Theology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies.

Throughout its history, CCBC has remained true to its initial vision: to provide a place where serious and committed Christians can learn of God and draw close to Jesus.

Golden Springs Bible College was founded in 1998, as an affiliate campus of Calvary Chapel Bible College Murrieta. As an affiliate campus, with a full-time study program, we offer all the required courses set by Murrieta. While our semesters run simultaneously with CCBC, each affiliate campus offers different elective courses.

Since its inception, two international campuses have come out of CCGS, located in Santiago, Chile and El Secreto, Colombia. Throughout the years, God has blessed each campus through His provision and bringing students, hungry to learn more about Him and His Word.
