Finding a Church

If you are thinking of finding a church, CONGRATULATIONS!  

You are about to join God’s kingdom and family on earth.   According to 1 Timothy 3;15, God gathers His children to become a Family, that we can worship, love and support one another!

1 Timothy 3:15

 The family of God is the church of the living God. It is the pillar and foundation of the truth.

attending a church


If you have never attended a church before, it sounds scary to go to a church and meet someone you have never met before.  Don’t worry.  I have some useful tips for you:

  1. Talk to a Christian Friend, saying that you want to find a church – You don’t need to commit.  Just take a time and visit his church, joins a service and see how it goes.  Most likely, you will like the church and keep going.  Otherwise, just tell your friend you would like to visit other churches before making a decision.
  2. Look around your neighborhood or search from the Internet – Find a church near you can be a good starting point.  You don’t need a long travel time, and if you keep going, you can participate more in the church since it is not far from your home.  
  3. Open your heart when selecting a church – It is not about finding a church that suits you, it is about how you can know more about God, grow in Christ, and serve with brothers and sisters in a church.  There are three questions you may ask yourself:
    • About God – Can I learn more about God in this church, through worship, sermons, and talk to brothers and sisters?   The church is not about a religion.  Its message must focus on God and how people can follow God.
    • About Church – Do you feel welcome by brothers and sisters in the church, would like to be part of them, and learn and serve God with them?
    • About Yourself – Pray to God and ask for His guidance.  Do you like to go again?   If so, go again.   When you attend and participate, you will learn that no church is perfect.   But some churches are more caring, more energetic in witnessing Christ, and more focused on the growth of Christians.
