|Christian Witness Ministries is often asked this question|
Here is a NON exhaustive list of some of the ways to check if a group or church IS living up to the Scriptural equivalent.
What are the pastor's/ minister's/ vicar's views on :
Refer to Christian Witness Ministries Web Site what CWM thinks of the above bullet pointed items.
Make an appointment with the Pastor / Minister/ Vicar to seek his particular views on these matters. Human beings love change, so naturally teachings can/may change.
Thus the Truth may be found at the xyz church today BUT if the minister changes then the Truth could well be missing and found elsewhere tomorrow.
Remember, we the people are the church, not a certain denomination or church building/plan. When Jesus comes for His Bride, the Church, only humans will rise to meet Him in the air..... there will be no bricks and mortar...... just Born Again people!
So you must be born-again! John 3:3
But until The Lord comes, enjoy the company of Born-Again Christians who are imperfect now and can only create imperfect replicas of that the True Church.
Be like the Bereans who checked out everything they were taught, rather than believing all they heard. Acts 17:10-11
Avoid "nit-picking" on non central issues. There is a difference between "contending for the faith" and "being contentious".
If you can't find anything close and convenient, consider starting a Home group. We can put you onto available material (methods) and may be able to help in other ways .
