Calvary Chapel Mission

Calvary Chapel Ministries India (CCMI) is a registered religious and charitable trust, founded by Pastor Abraham E Motakatla in the year 1983 under the name "Siloam Faith Evangelical Church Ministries."  Later the name was changed as we came into fellowship with Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa.  It was started as a small charity to serve the people around us with love and humble heart to bring them into the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

After we got registered with the government God has blessed our ministry and is growing with many activities with a vision to "reach the unreached billion" in rural and urban India.  As our passion for the perishing souls is growing, the ministry is also soaring with different activities that can be viewed.

CCMI is one of the pioneering Christian ministries/ Christian organizations in the Southern part of India in a state called "Andhra Pradesh"


Our Main aim is to obey and do what Jesus has taught His disciples telling everyone that He had paid the penalty for sin and that those who believe in Him can be forgiven and live eternally with God in Heaven.  We as Christian disciples today must go into all parts of the world preaching this gospel to people who haven't heard about Christ and by baptizing those who believed in the Triune God.


On this rock I will build my Church Mathew 16:18
