3 Things to know when you join a new church

πŸŽ™- 3 Things to know when you join a new church

The Bible teaches that we are the church, the body of Christ. Although, in this context, a church is a gathering of believers. The Bible also teaches that it is important for us as believers to be a part of a local church.

That said, there are circumstances when you may have to join a new church. E.g. due to a relocation, a desire to grow in the faith, as a new convert or returning to the church after some time. Whatever the reason, joining a new church is a new experience.

On this episode, I shared 3 things to know when you join a new church. This is also good advice you can share with others who may need it.

Listen, learn and enjoy!

    I decided I needed a new church for growth and community, so seeing this was apt.

    The very important point 1 please can you expatiate (with examples).

    Yep yep @ point 2 and 3.

    Thank you for sharing

      Hey Dipo, I’m glad it was helpful. Thank God.
      I totally relate to your first sentence.
      About point 1, a church should have a structure that produces discernible growth in your faith. You shouldn’t remain a baby forever, you have to grow. Ephesians 4:11-12, Philippians 1:25
      I shared this post, There’s so much more, during a time when I decided that I wanted to get answers to my questions about the faith.
      After being in the church for a while, I should confidently know what I believe and why I believe it. I should know what my new life in Christ involves, the gifts I have received and the responsibility it bestows on me. At the very least, there should always be progress in that direction.
      So, a church must have a structure to build you up in the faith and equip you for ministry. Just as you see the tangible change that a formal education brings, proper training in the Word of God and fellowship with other believers should produce a discernible growth in your faith.
      I hope this helps.
