How to Find a Church Home

(stolen lock, stock, and barrel from the web site for Bellevue Baptist Church)

Choosing a church home that is right for you and your family is a very important decision. Several factors need to be considered.


To find answers to these and other questions, you will need to do some research. The best place to start is by observation. Most churches give information material to visitors. Notice what this piece says about the church and its beliefs. Check the bulletin or other church literature for information about the focus of church programs. Note the general message the music and sermons convey as well as the prayers, rituals, and activities of the church. A visit with a staff member to ask specific questions may also be helpful. In addition, many churches offer a class on their beliefs and what membership involves.





Other Considerations

Obviously, many aspects of finding a church home have not been noted. This is an important process and one that may take some time. Visit several churches and remember, the key is to pray, asking God for guidance. He is able and desires to lead you to a healthy, active, growing church where you can serve Him and grow in your walk with Him and in fellowship with other believers.
