Eric,

What are your personal thoughts on bullet number one? Being in limbo right now and searching for a new church home, I find that the denomination is not as important as the people and the theology of the individual church overall. My big draw is a church that encourages the relationship with God more so than the relationship with the church. What I mean by this (and this is true) one church I was considering checking out actually asks their members at membership class to commit a certain amount of money to THE CHURCH and commit a certain amount of time to THE CHURCH just to be a member of it. I'm sorry, but that just made me sick. I don't think you can force anyone to do that, and I don't think it's biblical. I want a church who teaches me how to grow vertically. The church will then benefit from this as I grow and mature and want to serve HIM. The church is but one avenue to do this. I don't think someone should go to a particaluar church just because it's where their parents went and be committed to one denomination their whole lives. What are your thoughts?? Just curious. Thanks, Angie
