In 1965, Pastor Chuck Smith began preaching to young people in the coastal city of Costa Mesa, California. Only 25 people attended the first service of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. Today that small chapel has grown into a vibrant church that draws more than 25,000 worshipers each week and has given birth to the worldwide Calvary Chapel movement. From the beginning, Pastor Chuck welcomed all, young and old, without judgment, placing his emphasis on the teaching of the Word of God. This verse-by-verse exposition of the entire Bible is a reflection of Pastor Chuck's simple, yet sound, biblical approach.
The C2000 Commentaries, formerly known as the 5000 series, represent Pastor Chuck's messages Through the Bible delivered from 1979 to 1986.
