The Word For Today

Pastor Chuck had been the pastor of Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa for almost 50 years and in Christian ministry for some 65 years. He was 86 years old when he entered Glory. His impact on the Christian Church in the 20th century was like few others. Directly and indirectly:

•Thousands and thousands of churches have been planted all over the world as the fruit of his work
•Tens of thousands of pastors – both in the Calvary Chapel movement and far, far beyond – have been influenced and trained by him
•Millions of people came to a saving trust in and relationship with Jesus Christ, and millions more were led to Christian maturity through his Bible teaching and broader ministry
•The worship environment of the contemporary Christianity was essentially birthed through his ministry.
•His emphasis on the verse-by-verse exposition of the Bible as the center of the teaching and preaching ministry of the church has had a vast influence.

Mr. Bawksalot ,

Thank You!

Excellent collection of teachings. Thank you for this App! My only feedback is related to the app interface:

1. The downloads go very slowly no matter what network I'm connected to (LTE, Wi-Fi). And they don't continue in the background if I switch to another app. The only practical way for me to download is while I'm listening to the App. Makes things difficult in my rural area.

2. It's difficult to continue listen to a series. The app doesn't really keep track of where I am. I'm listening to the Romans study and every time I want to listen to or download another recording, I have to navigate through the menus. It would be a cool feature if the App remembered what series I was in or just continued on a series until I switched to something else. I'm going to be listening to Romans for some months I expect so that will be a lot of extra taps over time.

3. Going back to downloading, it would be a cool feature to be able to download an entire series at a time with a single click instead of each recording one by one.

Once again, thank you so much! Is there a way that users can support the development of this app financially or in any other way?

I'm amazed at this teaching and get a wealth of information and understanding. As the years pass and as Chuck Smith has passed, because he taught through the word which by no means will pass, these teachings apply today just as much as when these were recorded. One thing I would change if I could is when I'm driving to work I don't have enough time to listen to the whole thing. When I go to listen to where I left off, it makes me scroll through all of the other messages first. I have to allow myself extra time in the morning to search for it. Regardless, it's still super worthy to be a part of my daily life. Thanks!

Awesome!!! - HB214

All praises to The Lord! Thank you so very much for making Pastor Chuck’s sermons available! Ive been such a huge fan of his verse-by-verse messages and am grateful they are freely available. I have learned so much about Jesus Christ from Pastor Chuck’s teachings and realize I've just barely scratched surface. Please keep this updated!!! 👍🏻👍🏻

Additionally i am a huge fan of the KJV Bible and regularly read that translation, But i am equally a big fan of the 2001 ESV Bible translation which you also have available which i very much appreciate. Thank you very much!
