Three Questions to Ask When Looking for a Church

In our mobile society, many find themselves looking for a new church home. Here are a few questions to ask when you are looking for a new church home:

1. GOSPEL TRUTH: Is the Word well used at this church? Do the teachings of this particular local church sync with the teachings and emphases of God’s Word? In other words, is the preaching and teaching Christ-centered or does it promote what is called moralism – which is do better and be better Christianity?

2. COMMUNITY: Is the gospel clearly demonstrated in a loving, welcoming, outward focused community? Will I be loved here and find genuine connection and friendship with people who will spur me on to grow spiritually?

3. PURPOSE: Is the work well done here and am I needed here? In other words, can I use my gifts to serve Christ and his people here?
