What you should look for in a church:


  1. A Church is the people not the building, and all the people who constitute the membership of the church should be born again. Hebrews 8:11
  2. A Church which recognises the importance of preaching and teaching biblical doctrine. Acts 2:36, 2 Tim 3:16f
  3.  A Church which is seeking to rule itself according to biblical principles and instructions. Titus 1:9, Revelation 3:1-3
  4.  A Church which is not compromising itself by associating with those who do not teach Christ as the only way of being saved. Galatians 1:6-12.
  5. A Church which engages in reverent and biblical worship which should include:
  • Teaching (Acts 2:42)
  • Scripture Reading (I Timothy 4:13)
  • Congregational Singing (Colossians 3:16, Matthew 26:30)
  • Prayer (Acts 4:23-31)
  • Giving (2 Corinthians 8+9; esp. 9:13)
  • The Lord’s Supper. (Acts 2:42)
6.  A Church which has members whose lives are characterised by the following:
  • Friendliness (Hebrews 13:1-2, 1 John 4:7-5:2) 
  • Evangelism (2 Timothy 4:2, Romans 10:15)
  • Good works or godliness (Galatians 6:9-10)
  • Good order (Titus 1:5-2:15)
  • Joy in Christ (Romans 5:1-11)
