Crossbridge Church started in the city of Eastvale in 2004 with Pastor Dennis teaching verse by verse through the Word of God to a couple of families twice a month. Then in 2005, the Bible Study grew to a larger home fellowship setting meeting weekly in a local living room. The Home Fellowship eventually grew encompassing two houses and has grown to what it is today now as Calvary Chapel Eastvale meeting weekly at Clara Barton Elementary School in the Center of the City of Eastvale, CA.
Our Pastor Dennis Morales has been a part of the Calvary Chapel movement for over 20 years serving with two local Calvary Chapel ministries. He has served as a staff pastor at both Calvary Chapel Golden Springs in Diamond Bar and Calvary Chapel Claremont. Pastor Dennis planted Crossbridge Church (Calvary Chapel Eastvale) with the same Calvary Chapel philosophy of ministry as taught by Pastor Chuck Smith.
Calvary Chapel Eastvale is an affiliate ministry of the Calvary Chapel Association of churches (http://calvarychapelassociation.com/)
We are here to serve you.
We exist to equip the saints, preach the Gospel, and exalt Jesus Christ.
May God richly bless your day.
Pastor Dennis Morales
Over 20 years ago the Lord transformed my life in a way that man could never get credit for. I was angry, and searching for meaning in life. In my search, I found drugs, a party all the time lifestyle, and drinking as a means for escaping reality. My anger destroyed friendships, relationships, and separated my family. My anger led me to be on trial, in jail, and without hope. The reality was that I was lost and I was destined for destruction. I found Christ at a service in 1993 at CC Golden Springs. Pastor Raul Ries shared the simple truth of God’s word in a way that I felt that God was moving me like never before to open my heart to Him. I asked Christ into my heart and life and He has been working on me ever since. God had a plan for my life, which included my beautiful wife Michelle, and two boys, Noah & Nehemiah.
“I have been crucified with Christ so that, it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life that I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galations 2:20
I have had the privelege of serving in the Calvary Chapel movement for over 20 years through College Ministry, youth ministry, outreach ministries, missions, teaching in Calvary Chapel Bible College, and as Assisting Pastor. The last 20 years have been exhilarating. The Lord has led me into opportunities to preach and exalt Christ. I believe what God has done in my life to be real and accessible. This is the message I preach daily. God is accessible and He desires to transform your life. On behalf of the staff at CC Eastvale, we pray this ministry will point you to the hope that is in Christ and lead you into the life that He has planned for you all along.
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead...make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom [be] glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21
Asst Pastor Ken Castro
In 1978 I asked Jesus into my life, not because I was on drugs, addicted to drink, nor wanted for any crime, but because He showed me that I don’t have to do any of those things to be separated from Him, In fact I don’t have to do anythingk and that was the realization which spoke to me. Romans 3:23. Being raised in a religious system that offered a human penance for my sins, I saw that you could do just about anything and a few quick prayers I could go right bact out and do them again without any regard to what I just did. With a Godly mother preaching and praying for her family, I surrendered my life to the Lord.
39 years ago , I married my high school sweetheart, Teri, and our love for each other continues to grow stronger. We have 3 daughters, Michele, Kristy and Jennifer, and 3 grandchildren, Micah, Caleb and Abigail. After being dishcarged from the Navy, we started attending CC West Covina, sitting under the teaching of Pastor Raul Ries. The Lord then moved us out to San Bernardino, attending CC San Bernardino, where we sat under the teaching of Pastor John Miller for 28 years. Not long after I began to be involved with the ushering ministry, serving as head usher along with youth events and mission trips to Mexico.
The Lord has now brought us out to the city of Eastvale, serving here beside my wife for the past 6 years in any capacity needed and now as assistant pastor, of which I am blessed and honored to serve the body and community. John 6:68 “Lord to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life”
What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21).
WE BELIEVE there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)
WE BELIEVE in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory. (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16)
WE BELIEVE in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace, through faith alone, are we saved. (John 3:16-19; 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5)
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are not unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18)
WE BELIEVE marriage is a union ordained by God to be between one genetic male and one genetic female (Genesis 2). It was first instituted by God in the early chapters of Genesis, codified in the Levitical law, the Old Testament prophets compared it to a relationship between God and His people. Jesus explained the original intention and core elements of marriage, and several New Testament Epistles give explicit instructions on this union. Marriage is also a typology of Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5)
