What is it that makes Calvary Chapel different from
other Bible-believing, evangelical churches? It’s always good
to have a grasp of the unique work that God has done in
our fellowship. If Calvary Chapel is exactly like the church
across the street it would be better to simply merge the two.
But, if there are distinctives that make us different, then we
have a unique and special place in the plan of God. Certainly
there are churches that share many of our beliefs and prac-
tices. We’re not renegades. But God has done a wonderful
work of balance in the Calvary Chapel movement that does
make us different in many areas.
