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!
