How To Choose a Church.
Faith is something that cannot be chosen for a person. One has to do according to the desires of his/her heart although there are so many things that adds up to which church one will be attending. The first thing is the foundation of faith on one’s family. In most cases, parents contribute so much to the church their children attend and fellowship. Due to that treason, the bible teachings emphasis that parents should take that opportunity when their children are still young to teach them the best Christian way they would like them to follow for the rest of their lives. Research shows that those children whose parents are faithful members of certain churches stick to those churches even at their adulthood since they are used to the fellowship, the teachings and the services that go on in the church. On the other hand, it is also visible that those children whose parents are not strong members of any church, their children do not have any direction of faith, and they may develop a negative attitude towards going to any church, and it is due to that reasons that you will find that some adults, do not go to church and prefer to stay idle in the streets. You do not have to be the reason your children lacks direction of faith. In that case, it is important for you to be a good role model to you and your children and other children in your neighborhood.
The other thing you need to consider is the place that encourages fellowship. At some point in life, you will find that some children in their adolescent age and adulthood choose to follow another route on faith aside from the one their parents showed them when they were children. This is mostly influenced by the freedom of worship in some churches. You will find that most of the youths do not like a place where they do not fell as part of the church and when such a person finds a church where he/she is given priority to worship as he/she may wish, chances are he/she will feel comfortable there. In that case, churches that are strict and have a lot of restrictions beyond certain boundaries, may lack most of the youths since they do not feel as part of that church. It is therefore a call to the leaders of these churches to be considerate of tomorrow’s generation and give such youths an opportunity to worship as they wish as long as there is guidance on how to go about the whole situation. You need also to consider a place where you are going to grow spiritually. Spiritual food is very essential in one’s life and due to that reason, some of these things you can only find them in church. It is therefore good for you to follow your heart and stay in that church which enables you to do so since if you lack the spiritual food, chances are you will be able to know how to live well with yourself as well others in your social life.
