Calvary Chapel

Calvary Chapel, an association of evangelical Christian churches, maintains a number of radio stations around the world and operates many local Calvary Chapel Bible College programs. It presents itself as a "fellowship of churches" in contrast to a denomination, and includes over one thousand congregations worldwide.[not in citation given] Churches that affiliate with Calvary Chapel may use the name "Calvary Chapel" but need not do so. Beginning in 1965 in Southern California, this fellowship of churches grew out of Chuck Smith's Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. Doctrinally, Calvary Chapel is eva ... ngelical, charismatic, and pretribulationist, and maintains the principle of sola scriptura. Chuck Smith's "Calvary Chapel Distinctives" summarize the tenets for which Calvary Chapel stands. Calvary Chapels place great importance on the practice of expository teaching, a "verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book" approach to teaching the Bible. Typically, Calvary Chapels operate under a senior pastor-led system of church government, sometimes referred to[by whom?] as the "Moses" model. More
