Our style

Our worship music style is mostly modern, accessible, upbeat, & honest. We do love to include some classic hymns, as well. We typically use a full band, but will often simplify and enjoy the blending of our voices!

We have roots in the Jesus People movement among the surfers and hippies in Southern California in the late 60s, so, folks at Calvary Chapels tend to dress casually. Dress up, or dress comfortably–your call. Maybe sport your favorite Hawaiian shirt. Just be yourself.

Our Bible teaching is typically verse-by-verse through books of the Bible. On Wednesday nights, we cover a full chapter in a longer study (70 min). On Sundays, we take deeper dive into a key passage (30-40 min).

Calvary Chapel is a "charismatic" church, yet we practice spiritual gifts as instructed in scripture—orderly, and not in chaos. Don't expect a "pentecostal" style church service: we use the spiritual gifts in serving one another individually or in smaller gatherings.


We desire that CCO be a "house of prayer"—and we will always strive to be even more faithful to direct our hearts to God.

Some of our regular prayer opportunities include...

Worship Services • During our closing worship song, we will quiet the music and invite you to come pray with our prayer team and ministry leaders.

Prayer Chain • If you have a prayer need, you can send it to our prayer chain at [email protected].

Prayer Team • We also have a group that prays during our 8am church service and would love to have you join in!


We share in communion regularly at CCO, as an important practice for the Christian. We believe this is a celebration of Jesus' work on the cross and a public proclamation of faith in Him, and we urge believers to take the elements reverently and prayerfully.

We will either have the elements available up front for people partake of individually, or alternately, the ushers will pass the elements so we can partake together.


Regular, faithful giving is an important spiritual disciple for the believer, and we encourage you to support your local church.

We believe that giving should to be Spirit–led, generous, joyful, faithful, and private.

Our ushers will collect offerings during worship. You may also give at the front desk at any time. We especially encourage online giving for convenience.

Calvary Chapel Oxnard is a non–profit, 503c organization, and all gifts are tax–deductible.

A short history of cco

Lance Ralston is the founding pastor of Calvary Chapel of Oxnard, which began in the Fall of 1982 in Port Hueneme. Since that time, the church has met in several locations as it has grown over the years, including Bolker Park, Oxnard College, the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, in El Rio and in the Wagon Wheel area of North Oxnard. We moved to our present facility on Eastman Avenue in the Fall of 1998. Over that time, Calvary Chapel Oxnard has steadily grown from a half dozen families to an average Sunday congregation of over nine hundred adults.

Pastor Ralston’s method of teaching is solidly expositional, following the Inductive Method of Observation, Interpretation, and Application. During the mid-week study, he teaches from one to five or more chapters, verse by verse. Sunday morning sermons are drawn from the passages being covered in the mid-week study. This two-fold method of teaching both survey and in-depth, provides the congregation with a good balance that moves them through the whole counsel of God’s Word, while being able to focus on major themes of both theology and the practical issues of the Christian life.

CCO is part of a larger movement of non-denominational churches that began in the late 1960’s in Southern California called “Calvary Chapel.” These churches, while independent, all maintain a voluntary association based on certain doctrinal and stylistic distinctives. There are over a thousand Calvary Chapel fellowships both in this country and abroad.
