Calvary Chapel is a non-denominational church movement. All their churches are operated independently (not a denomination). The churches do not even necessarily have Calvary Chapel in their name.

However, the common denominator for these churches is the fellowship and like-mindedness of the men who serve as their senior pastors, coupled with a strong focus on the inerrancy of the Bible and the expository teaching from Genesis to Revelation.
