A little information about Chuck Smith and Calvary Chapel:
Affiliates of Calvary Chapel believe in the fundamental doctrines of evangelical Christianity, which include the inerrency of the Bible and the Trinity. Within evangelical Christianity, they say that they stand in the "middle ground between fundamentalism and Pentacostalism in modern Protestant theology". While they share with fundamentalism a belief in the inerrancy of the Bible, unlike fundamentalists, they accept spiritual gifts. However, they feel that Pentecostalism values experience at the expense of the word of God.
Calvinism and Arminianism
According to Calvary Chapel literature, the association strives to "strik[e] a balance between extremes" when it comes to controversial theological issues such as Calvinism's and Arminianism's conflicting views on salvation. Calvary Chapels hold the following views on the five points:
1. Regarding total depravity, Calvary Chapel affirms that "apart from God's grace, no one can be saved," and that "mankind is clearly fallen and lost in sin."
2. Regarding unconditional election, Calvary Chapel affirms that God, "based on his foreknowledge, has predestined the believer," and that "God clearly does choose, but man must also accept God's invitation to salvation."
3. Regarding limited atonement, Calvary Chapel affirms that Jesus died "for the whole world" and that the "atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ was clearly sufficient to save the entire human race."
4. Regarding irresistable grace, Calvary Chapel affirms that "God's grace can either be resisted or received by the exercise of human free will".
5. Calvary Chapels "believe in the perseverence of the saints (true believers) but are deeply concerned about sinful lifestyles and rebellious hearts among those who call themselves 'Christians'."
Calvary Chapels strongly espouse pretribulationist and premillenialist views in their eschatology (the study of the end times). They believe that the rapture of the Church will occur first, followed by a literal seven-year period of Great Tribulation, followed by the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ, and then finally a literal thousand-year reign of Jesus Christ on earth called the Millenial Kingdom. Calvary Chapel also rejects supressionsism and instead believes that the Jews remain God's chosen people and that Israel will play an important part in the end times.
