My wife and I recently moved to Atlanta and will soon begin “shopping” for a new church home. Since there are so few resources available when it comes to church shopping I figured I would post how we plan on doing it.
I generally measure churches on two metrics:
1. Truth. Does their teaching contain substance? Is it true?
2. Love. Do their members love each other (KEY!) as much as they love outsiders?
If either of these is missing I consider the church to be dead, regardless of how many programs, people in attendance, mission teams, etc. they claim to have.
