Calvary Chapel

Calvary Chapel, a non-denominational, Evangelical fellowship of Christian churches, began in 1965 in Southern California. It presents itself as a “fellowship of churches” in contrast to a denomination. Churches that apply and qualify for affiliation through an extensive and thorough application process, can then use the name “Calvary Chapel”, but need not do so. Calvary Chapel has over one thousand such congregations worldwide. [1] The original Calvary Chapel is Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, pastored by Chuck Smith. Doctrinally, Calvary Chapel is evangelical, pretribulationist, and strongly committed to the Reformational principle of sola scriptura.
