They’re pretty small as church groups go.
Definitely avoid “Calvary Chapel”. First of all, they teach a false gospel of works that leads to hell (Galatians 1:6-9). They teach that you must do the works that they say to do, otherwise you don’t go to heaven. They also teach that you can “lose” your salvation, meaning that there is no security for any believer, according to them.
But Jesus said to simply believe in Him for salvation.
Also, several websites have opened up in recent years to expose abuses at “Calvary Chapel”. They are VERY authoritarian, and they have broken up marriages and caused abuses of varying kinds. Even Christianity Today magazine did an expose about this.
