Finding a church is serious business, and so is evaluating the one you already belong to. What do you look for—what are your priorities? Preaching style? Denomination? Type of music? Youth group? Friendly atmosphere? Service times? Location?
None of those factors are necessarily wrong to consider. The issue is: What should churches primarily be known for? What should stand out most in a church you’d want to call home?
Amid all the options and competing priorities, the Bible speaks clearly as ever. John MacArthur’s What to Look for in a Church lays out just what the title says, and it shows you how God blesses churches that follow His blueprint. Delivered to a group of college students but applicable to believers of every age, this study can help guide you to a church you can call home—or encourage you that you’re already there!
