When a person goes to church, they ought to get involved more than just listening to the pastor speak. They ought to apply it to their lives and share it with others. It is a good rule of thumb to stay at one church, but sometimes there are reasons to change churches.
Here are a few things to think about and pray about before you consider looking for a new church. ~ Bill Greguska
1 Corinthians 10:32 Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks, or the church of God.

Four Different Types Of Christian Churches:
Find a Good Church And Keep It Simple
Here are four characteristics that all of the people from a good church should have, that my friend Jackie Hynes shared with me:
- Love God
- Honor His Word
- Treat others with love.
- Be a light
What I Believe About The Church
People in the church are held to a higher standard than other people. The pastors and staff have a significant influence on many people, so that is why the higher standard comes into play.
I have also heard people tell me that they can be followers of Jesus Christ without going to church every Sunday.
There is some truth to that claim, but in reality, a Christian needs others to help build them up, teach them God’s word, walk together in fellowship, and be there for them physically when they need compassion, encouragement, wisdom, and support.
My church life began from the time I was born; I attended St. Gregory Catholic school from 4th grade until 8th grade.
Then when I was about 28 years old, I put aside my Catholic faith. I then attended my first real Bible-believing church, which was the Elmbrook church, for a total of 23 years. ~ Bill Greguska
Anyone who is to find Christ must first find the church. How could anyone know where Christ is and what faith is in him unless he knew where his believers are? ~ Martin Luther
Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Looking To Find A Good Church?
I started to attend Elmbrook church right after I got out of long-term alcohol and drug treatment. God healed me from my addictions, then He started working on my salvation, regeneration, and a closer walk with the Lord.
Shortly after that time, I started going to Elmbrook, a Bible-believing church that I attended from 1989 until 2016. I was under good teaching by Pastor Stuart Briscoe and was grounded in my faith at Elmbrook. Then in 2016, I started going to Redeemer Evangelical Free Church. Redeemer is also a Bible-believing church.
The reason I mention this is because it does not matter what church you attend. Just as long as it is a Bible-believing church that you get connected to. Also, keep in mind that a church is not meant for saints. A church is a hospital intended for sinners to get well and find the light and then share it with others!
The Christian faith starts in the home, branches out to the church, and then reaches out to others in the community for those who are already Christians and those who are not Christian.
Find A Good Church And Get Involved
Ask God if the church you are in now could be improved with your help. Suppose you are new to the area and are just searching to find a good church. Finding a good church is very important. Do not just show up to the church, but get involved and get to know and grow with others in your church.
Be sure that the church is a Bible-believing church, and you visit it before you join. Make sure you know what the church believes before joining. ~ Bill Greguska
