About Us / Our History

Calvary Chapel of Fort Worth is a non-denominational church fellowship, affiliated originally with Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, California that was started by Pastor Chuck Smith. In the Fort Worth area, Calvary Chapel began March 13, 1992 as a Bible Study in the home of Bill and Becky Quinn.

At its inception, four people came together for fellowship and study in God’s Word. At their second meeting three people received Christ.

On February 21, 1993 Calvary Chapel had its first church service. After just two years, they had outgrown the facility and moved to their present location.

In October 2009, we completed the addition of our 14,000 sq. ft. KiDZ Church for children nursery age to 5th grade. This year, we will be building “The Barn” for our middle and high schoolers. Construction for this building is already underway and should be completed by early summer.

Calvary Chapel of Fort Worth is a ministry founded on the scripture from 1 Corinthians 13:8, “Love Never Fails.” Pastor Bill received Christ on a Florida beach in 1977. He attended Calvary Chapel Las Vegas from 1979 until 1984, when he moved to Texas to begin full-time ministry. In addition to working in the Christian concert industry, this is Pastor Bill’s second church to plant for the Lord. He has traveled abroad and in the United States teaching the Word of God.
