Perhaps you have just moved into a new area and are looking for a nice church to worship.
In choosing the right place to worship, use this 5 tips:
There is every possibility when I mentioned worship your mind went straight to the beautiful songs we sing as we lift our hands and close our eyes in a pious mood. Worship goes beyond this though; it is more of devotion to the owner of your soul. So, look for a church that encourages and fosters your devotion to God.
Another important criterion in looking for the right church. Discipleship is our calling as Christians. Look for a church that is serious about discipleship. Being a disciple would mean that you are growing as a Christians instead of just marking attendance in church and engaging in church activities to fulfill all righteousness. A healthy church is more concerned with growing members than with growing numbers.
Sound doctrine cannot be overemphasized. You really need a church with sound doctrine. There are a lot of churches today with strange and ridiculous doctrines. First of all, ensure the church you plan to attend is Christo-centric; that is, focuses on the person of Jesus. Don’t get caught in sensationalism or motivational messages but stay with the gospel. Finding the right church will help a lot.
True Christian Fellowship is not just pot-luck meals and times of social gatherings. These types of fun events can often lead to fellowship but don’t underestimate the importance of fellowship. True Christian fellowship is fellowship where believers edify one another. So, beyond all the chill times, ensure your church encourages edification.
Finally, in searching for a church, look for one that encourages evangelism. This is one of the cores of our Christian faith. We ought to ‘go into all the world’; Ensure your church is really into reaching out with the gospel of Christ.
Most importantly, note that there is no perfect church. In fact, the church is made up of imperfect people made perfect in Christ. I hope you really find the right church. Cheers
