Finding the Right Church or Ministry

How to Find the Right Church or Christian Ministry


Tim Leahy

The short answer to finding the right Church or Christian Ministry is that it is biblical. That means that the Church or ministry believes that the Bible is the Word of God (1 Thessalonians 2:13). That the Bible is the only inspired, infallible, inerrant revelation the Creator gave to humanity (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:15-17). It means that the Church or ministry believes and teaches what God’s Word says, and is committed to living out what God says about following Him His way.

A biblical Church or ministry believes that Jesus is the Messiah, the Savior of the world (Luke 2:11, Matthew 1:21; Acts 4:12), and the only way to God (John 14:6), the Creator of the universe (Genesis 1:1).

Finding the right Church or Christian ministry takes time and patients to find. Just because they say they’re a Christian Church or ministry does not mean they are. Unfortunately, not every church or ministry is biblical in its belief and practices.

Before going to the Church or ministry, check them out online. Go to their “About” page and read through their “Statement of Faith” or “beliefs” to make sure they line up closely with an orthodox historical statement of faith like this.
