People like to Church shop. So when looking for a community of faith here is something I came across from Lee Morgan at Youthpastor.com and their email listserv.
Real Faith: is it a place where you are learning to live out a faith filled life
Real Family: Is it a place that you can experience biblical community?
Real Friends: Is there a high importance on evangelism. Is it a place that will spur you on to reach out to your friends. Is it a safe place to invite your friends.
Some good thoughts.
Others you might add?
