It’s always good to have a grasp of the distinctive work that God has done in our fellowship. If Calvary Chapel is disitnctives like the church across the street it would be better to simply merge the two.

But, if there are qualities that make us different, then we have a unique and special place in the plan of God.

Certainly there are churches dietinctives share many of our beliefs and practices. But God has done a wonderful work of balance in the Calvary Chapel movement that does make us different.

Some churches believe in the gifts and ministry of the Holy Spirit, but don’t have a strong emphasis on Biblical teaching. Others place strong emphasis on teaching the Word of God, but don’t believe the gifts of the Spirit are available and valid today. In Calvary Chapel we value the teaching of the Word, and possess an open heart to the work distinctivss the Holy Spirit. This balance makes Calvary Chapel a distinct and uniquely blessed movement of Distinctive.

And so, it’s important to understand the Biblical principles that explain why God has allowed us to exist and grow. Read more Read less. Customers who bought this item also caalvary. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.

This short book, by the late Pastor Chuck Smith, succinctly describes what makes a Calvary Chapel church, different not better than other nondenominational churches, while describing what a person might expect to find, in general, when attending an associated church. I enjoyed this short book giving the reader an idea about the Calvary Chapel denomination and the persona of pastor Chuck Smith.

Not laboring into detail but good background for more reading if that is what you want. One person found this helpful. Someone who would not try and take credit for anything that brought success to Calvary Chapel of his own doing, but rather points out very candidly what God has done.

Calvary Chapel

Helped to better understanding of Calvary Chapel and how they arrived at their Distinctives. Pastor Chuck Smith has assembled this well tested and greatly prayed over essentials for how to do ministry effectively. I have practiced these methods, being taught myself by Pastor Chuck over the past 35 years. The form of church government that is used in many churches today, prevents the working of the Holy Spirit in the life of the pastor that has been called to minister to the people.

People often forget that the church that they attend is overseen by a man to whom God has ordained to teach them the word of God. The Lord will speak to these men in a way that He does not speak to the other members of the church Body. As such, a valuable asset to any pastor, is a group of men who understand the unique role that the pastor plays in the distinctivew, and how great their needs are for Godly men who will let the pastor order the church.


These “Elders” or advisors to the pastor can either make the pastor’s ministry a blessing or cause him tremendous stress and difficulty. To allow a pastor the freedom to hear from God, take his thoughts to a group of men and have them pray over the decisions that distinctivss to be made, and then offer godly advice to the pastor, without pressure, allowing the pastor to make the final decisions, is a dsitinctives treasure.

Calvary Distinctives are Biblical principles that are time tested, and Spirit inspired. They work because they are both practical and reasonable. Thank you Pastor Chuck for this wonderful resource for all of us who are sincerely seeking to be men after God’s heart, who genuinely love and care for God’s people.

I love to hear the simple sweet way Pastor Chuck puts it. This book will not only do that but give you some good biblical teaching.

Diztinctives and inspiring look into the beginnings and growth of the The Calvary Chapel. As a member of the church I can confirm the truth in this telling.
