First things first. Perhaps the most important step you take in choosing a new church is to check out their Statement of Faith. Sometimes this is called the "What We Believe" or "Who We Are" on the church's website. If you can't locate a website just call and ask! The point is that you want to make sure the church's doctrine and beliefs line up with yours. For Heidi and I we would want to know who do they say God is? Is He the one true God, uncreated, living and unchangeable? How about the Trinity and Scripture? Do they agree that God is the first person of the Trinity and that Jesus and the Holy Spirit complete the Triune God? Is all of Scripture, both the Old and New Testaments, God-breathed and infallible? Other questions that need to be addressed concern the Gospel, the purpose and value of worshipping as a body, and how we are saved. If any of these criteria are not met, or are not clearly answered we would say skip over this church.
