    Find a church that teaches only from the Bible :)

    Are you in England? You can scroll down to the link for England on this page, and find a church: http://www.wayoflife.org/directory/international.html

    If one isn’t near you, then contact the closest to you, and ask them for a recommendation near you :)

    For reading the Bible, start in the Book of John, and you will get introduced to JESUS!

    You can read Genesis later.

    The Book of John is best to start in :) Read the chapters in order.

    Ask Jesus for understanding, and He will give it to you!

    For a commentary, here is a website that teaches the meaning of every verse in the Bible: http://www.soniclight.com/constable/notes.htm

    Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! :D And the Trinity is true!

    The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to hell, is by believing in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died on the cross for all our sins as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, and you will be in heaven, no matter what!

    Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in Jesus to save you! It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation (John 6:39-40, John 10:28, 1 John 5:13).

    Please pray now: “Jesus, I believe that You died on the cross to pay for my sins and that You rose from the dead, and I thank You for eternal life!” You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die! :D

    The Catholic one.

  • Karl P

    Go to a liberal or moderate church. The conservative ones are dangerous.

    What is the best sort of Christian Church? . . .A ruin. (no pious bigoted brainwashed fools) . . but just a nice well built building to look around. . .

  • Darth Eowyn

    Wouldn’t the original be the best?

    Catholic.

  • space monkey

    One who teaches from the Bible and encourages YOU to read it too, for yourself.

    Obviously the best church is the original Christian Church which dates back to the Apostles. This Church is still with us, having had an unbroken succession of almost 2 thousand years from the time of the Apostle St. Peter who was its first leader as Bishop of Rome. This is the Catholic (meaning universal) Church. It is the only Church founded by Jesus and given authority by Jesus Himself.

    All the others denominations/churches/sects/cults are much more recent inventions founded by self-appointed men and women who decided they were entitled to self-interpret scripture without any reference to the Catholic Church whose members actually wrote the New Testament and compiled the book we call the Bible.

    It depends on how strict you want your religion to be-it would be best to try out church of england or catholic first (catholic’s the strict one) and then go on from there and try out the ones that branch off those two. Hope this helps:)

    Your best bet would be to say to family, friends, and associates, “I’m looking for a church. Do you know of one which is helping people outside its walls and which doesn’t insist that people think only one way about their relationship with a higher power?” Of course, the answer you’ll probably get will be a laugh followed by “Good luck. When you find it, let me know. I’ll come, too.”

    In the meantime, throw your question to the universe: “Universe, I’m looking for a church that reflects these qualities: [fill in blank here]. What do you suggest?” And let the universe answer.

    Finally, take your time. When you find something which is right for you, you’ll know it. Best wishes for your journey!

  • ThE MaN

    The Catholic Church
    It was the first Christian Church and therefore the “True Salvation”
    You will be fulfilled with joy and you will thank me in the future

    Good Luck!

    Seek the Church that Christ founded and still guides.

  • coffee_pot12

    A church that teaches from the Bible, follows the 10 commandments and keeps the Sabbath.

    Avoid the church that is left behind, follows half the Bible, and ignores the 4th Commandment but keeps the other 9.

  • Susanna

    well one should pray and ask for guidance, choosing one that aderes to God’s Holy Living Word, after all, we should strive to follow Jesus’ teachings and not man made traditions and rituals or additional extra supplementals thrown in and used often “above” the Bible, kinda seems to defeat the purpose doing it any other way than gaining the Truth, Knowledge and Wisdom of His Truths & Promises …so that being said, know that the Truth is “unpopular” and if you seek too much fun/with lotsa different views/non Biblical doctrine etc, then your in it for the wrong reasons, there is only ONE Truth and that is found in the Bible and the Bible Alone…Pray/converse with Him and Listen with your
    heart :-D Peace/Love & God Bless

  • JOSEPH D

    One that is closed.

  • James O

    One that is universal, ancient,consistent in doctrine and morals,going back to the Apostles and produces saints and the Catholic Church is the only one that does all of these

    Hey there,

    There are loads of good Churches in every denomination. Theologically I’m a Baptist, and that’s what my current Church is – but I’ve been to others too when the local Baptist Church wasn’t so good. So I wouldn’t get too hung up on denominational labels. The differences are much less than you might think. The main thing is that you always keep an open mind. Don’t automatically trust what you’re being told, listen and evaluate it in the light of what you’re reading in the Bible. As you get to know the Bible better you might find you sometimes disagree with what the pastor said – and that’s okay.

    If you’re looking to find out more about Christianity, why not do an Alpha Course? It’s an awesome introduction to Christianity and it’s run by Churches in every major denomination (Baptist, Anglican, Catholic, Methodist etc). It runs for about 10 weeks. I know people who have done it, and they loved it. Basically, the typical format is that you meet once a week, have dinner (so you make good friends as well – and it’s free!), listen to a short talk on a subject (e.g. how do we know God exists, why should we trust the Bible, etc) and then break into smaller groups where you get the chance to honestly discuss your thoughts, ask questions etc. There’s usually a weekend away too, which seems to be a life-changing experience for many.

    I’d suggest looking on Alpha’s website, find a local Church which runs Alpha and go along for a few Sundays. If they have coffee after the service, stay and introduce yourself. Also, have a chat with the pastor. See if you get on well with the people, if you like the worship style etc. If you do, then sign up for their next Alpha course!

    Hope that helps!
    :-)
