about us

Calvary Chapel North Stafford is a church that is affiliated with the late Pastor Chuck Smith and Calvary Chapel Associations.  Calvary Chapel is a non-denominational fellowship of churches with certain beliefs and distinctives. In October of 2004, Calvary Chapel North Stafford held its first Sunday Morning Service (under the name North Stafford Bible Fellowship) in a small conference room inside the Comfort Inn located on 610 (Garrisonville Rd) in Northern Virginia.  Since then Calvary Chapel North Stafford has enjoyed God’s hand of grace in adding to His church daily those who are being saved (Acts 2:47), as well as His faithfulness in pruning the branch that is not bearing fruit, so that it may bear more fruit (John 15:2). Though we’re not a large church, we recognize that God has raise up Pastor Steve to be the shepherd of CCNS in the Stafford / Fredericksburg / Quantico area, and has given him a heart to teach God’s people His Word and to reach as many people in the Northern Virginia area.


CCNS is a fellowship of likeminded believers who are missions-minded. Our calling has always been to reach not only Stafford County for Jesus Christ, but the Fredericksburg area, along with our great service members stationed in Quantico Marine Corp Base. But our prayers go beyond Virginia as we support missionaries throughout all the world in places such as the Gaza Strip, Ukraine, Mexico, Hungary, and even England. However, Pastor Steve knows in order to accomplish our call to reach the world for Christ through missions, Calvary Chapel North Stafford has to be a body of believers that is well fed and well cared for, thus Pastor Steve is committed to his ultimate calling to equip the sheep and to feed the sheep at CCNS. As was the case with Pastor Chuck Smith, Pastor Steve’s heart’s desire is to have the most educated, well fed and well cared for flock in all of Stafford County, so that we, acting as one body, having Christ as our head can effectively reach the world for Jesus Christ.


It has always been our prayer at Calvary Chapel North Stafford that “They would know that we are His Disciples by the Love we have for one another.” (John 13:35) That is why on Sunday mornings, (and at any one of our Home Groups) it is of utmost importance to Pastor Steve that everyone who attend Calvary Chapel North Stafford is embraced and welcomed. The body of Christ is a family, a spiritual family, thus our supreme desire is when someone new comes into our fellowship that they are immediately embraced and welcomed into our family.


If you live in the Stafford, Fredericksburg, King George or Woodbridge area, or if you are a Marine stationed at Quantico, we invite you to come out to Calvary Chapel North Stafford and study God’s Word with us as Pastor Steve takes us verse by verse through the bible and join our family of believers.
