Guidelines from God’s Word:
“How to find the Church God established where Jesus truly reigns supreme, so you can comfortably bring your family, learn God’s Word contextually, and grow in Christ as God’s desires?” (Acts 2:41-47)
First, look for a man/pastor who is truly transformed, i.e., living a life of obedience to God’s Holy Word EVERYDAY, and leading people to truly follow Jesus completely.
Second, look for people who humbly live lives of obedience to God’s holy Word.
Third, look for people who are willing to change their lives when it is “out of line” with God’s Holy Word. Specifically, people who are clothed with gentleness and true love of Jesus (John 14:15)
Fourth, look for people who are in fellowship weekly, absent with only rare exceptions.
Fifth, look for people who have reverence for our Lord and Savior, regularly partake in the Lord’s Supper, and respect God’s ministry.
Sixth, look for people who have a genuine appreciation for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and a prayer life reflective of that.
Seventh, look for people whose love is demonstrated in giving and doing for others.
Eighth, look for a unified people.
Ninth, look for an infectious love for all of humanity.
