Churches have changed a lot since I was a kid
The internet did not even exist then. Now there are a lot of empty churches everywhere. Churches have changed, but some things have not. Our services are based on traditional concepts, but we have updated to an internet presence.
A lot of people want to rebel at the thought of churches changing, but not all change is bad, and not all evolution is about doing away with good traditions.
If you can’t find a church to attend locally, you are welcome to join with us online. Remember, the church is not a building, but the believers that make up the community.
If you can go to church, you should
People are so busy these days. Any time we can find to rest, it seems we do. Your local church probably needs support, too, but maybe the local church hurt you and you aren’t comfortable there. Maybe you have issues with God. I don’t know your situation, but I do know that there are people in church who care. Yes, there are some churches where the people are holier than thou, but the vast majority of Christians do not sit on a church board. They know they are sinners and they are just glad they know Jesus. Beyond that, they may not have things figured out.
You don’t have to know everything to be a Christian
You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to dress the same as everyone else either.
You have to know that Jesus Christ died for your sins, that he was risen from the grave, and that he’s coming back again. If you know those things and if you are trying to live right, even if you make mistakes, then you also probably know that Jesus still forgives our sins. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive our sins. We are still human. We will make mistakes, but we also can grow in understanding. We can make new choices that take us in new directions.
Try out your local church
See if their services provide you with what you need. If they don’t, try another church in your area. I understand it is hard to find a good church. It’s not that the other churches are bad, just maybe you don’t fit in with them. That’s OK.
If you reach out to me, we can discuss finding you the kind of church you need. I’ll help you find one in your area.
This organization is very new. This website still has wet paint on the walls. Our services are all online unless I can find a place to hold meetings. When I travel to India, I go to the local services.
When I am home, I try to attend local services when I can.
Churches have changed a lot, but they are still important. Get fed somewhere.
