With so many churches all around and new ones springing up all the time I am more confused than ever. (Two new churches just started in our little town, both "contemporary" in their music/methods.) Honestly I don't know which "church" I would even want to go to right now. We are attending and helping out at a church right now, which is wonderfully kind and loving to all who enter, but there are few youth. Do we find another church where there's something more for our kids?
We have always been convinced, and remain so, that what's truly important is the preaching and teaching of God's inerrant Word; sincere worship (which does not necessarily mean emotional, upbeat, loud, music with a "worship band" and a certain style of dress.... nor does it necessarily mean hymn books, organ and people in suits and ties); love for God, love for each other and love for the world around us, reaching out to them and sharing God's word with them. These are the basics as far as we're concerned.
