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 of the late Pastor Chuck Smith has grown and developed, through God’s provision, to provide a place where serious and committed Christians can learn of God and draw close to Jesus.

Under the direction and vision of Pastor Raul Ries, Calvary Chapel 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 offered all the required courses set by Murrieta. As God continued to multiply the work here at Calvary Chapel Golden Springs Bible College, we have since been approved to provide our very own degree and certificate programs.

Since our inception, two international campuses have come out of CCGS Bible College, located in Santiago, Chile and El Secreto, Colombia. Throughout the years, God has blessed our campus through His provision and bringing students, hungry to learn more about Him and His Word. We desire to continue the work that Chuck Smith had envisioned, helping students draw closer to the knowledge of God’s Word and equipping them for the work of the ministry.
