How To Find A Good Church
by Sandy Simpson, 2003
Here’s how to find a good church. What you need to find is a church that not only has orthodox doctrinal statements but teaches, both explicitly and implicitly, in line with the core doctrines of the Faith. These are Bible-believing Christ-centered churches that are balanced in their theology. Be sure to test all churches before you become involved. It is acceptable to get involved with a house church or Bible study as long as there is someone who has the gift of teaching there to lead the study of God’s Word.
Hebrews 10:25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
The Christian life is not one to be lived alone. Trust me; I have sympathy for those who have been spiritually injured by false churches, false prophets, false teachers and false apostles. It is often a long road back from the diaprax of heresy. But to undo the brainwashing you will need help, especially from those who are already ahead of you on your journey back. The first-century church
was known for the following:
Acts 2:42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
This is a good gauge to tell if you are involved in an effective assembly of believers, no matter how small. Remember that the first-century churches were in homes. In my experience, smaller churches are much better at doing the above and more. Avoid megachurches.
