The All-Faith Chapel was recognized as the “Mother Church” of the Indian Wells Valley. It was established at what was then the Naval Ordnance Test Station in 1944, long before the building of churches in Ridgecrest and vicinity. The original chapel served Roman Catholic, Jewish and a variety of Protestant denominations. In July 2019 the All-Faith Chapel suffered irreparable damage caused by two earthquakes, one a 6.4 magnitude and the second a 7.1 magnitude.
