This teaching was given by pastor Barry Forder on 2nd October 2022 at Calvary Chapel Portsmouth.
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 practices. 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.
In this teaching Pastor Barry concludes our study of the distinctives that set Calvary Chapel apart as we seek to understand God’s plan and purpose for us as individuals and as a fellowship.
