Problems with Calvary Chapel Movement
By David Cox

The Calvary Chapel movement was built around Chuck Smith, now deceased. The CC movement was built around this pastor, and there are over 1500 churches related to Smith’s church. The movement is very strong in believing in the inspiration of Scripture.

Non-Cessationist position

The principal thing that I see wrong from the beginning is that they do not believe in the cessation of spiritual gifts. So essentially they are still within the Pentecostal mindset. Chuck Smith came out of the Pentecostal movement by the way.

Ecumenicalism

Our Tract Ministry

This page describes our tract ministry, including tract production (printing and folding). Our ministry is not that big yet, but we continue to grow. We have about 350 Spanish titles and 90 English titles and are adding translations into other languages. Please read this page and pray for this ministry.

min 50 – One of their leaders works closely with Billy Graham organization.

min 33 – Denounces Emergent Church as being liberal. (Good!)

min 37 – Speaks well of Billy Graham.

Spiritual Abuse

Calvary Chapel Confusion

 

Rock Music as new worship Style

I got this from http://www.understandthetimes.org/cotd/videocotd28.shtml

Many who attended Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa in the past under the leadership of Pastor Chuck Smith are wondering what changes to expect now that a new generation is at the helm. The following video clip of “worship” at the Cornwall, England Creationfest in the summer of 2013 sanctioned by the new leadership of CCCM should provide a clear answer to that question.

This proves that you can put Christian words of a hymn to trash Rock music and it is still trashy Rock music! The amazing thing about this video is that people actually think this is worship?????
