Where To Go To Church

I am at a church that I love yet, part of me says find another church cause you don't fit in you will never find your place here and the other part says this is where you belong. I don't know what part is God versus myself I love the church but I don't know if I belong.

Just because a church makes you "feel" good doesn't mean that's the right church. Do they preach the Word of God? Are they seeking to save lost souls? Do they help the needy? Do they know how to serve? Let the Holy Spirit lead and guide you. He will. He did me. Search the scriptures, God will give you an answer. Until then, just stand.

They that walk by faith shall not make haste. Pray and let the peace of God rule in your heart and be thankful. Hasty decisions make for hasty regrets. When God speaks to you in your spirit, He doesn't speak in the second person "you". He speaks in the first person "I" because of union in spirit. If you have heard "YOU don't fit in and will never find YOUR place", then it is pretty safe to say that it isn't God.

The "cause you don't fit in and you will never find your place" sounds like the slanderer/accuser. How long have you been at this fellowship? Obviously long enough to love the people. If you were fine until you started hearing "you don't fit", then guess where the confusion came from and is still coming from. You "fit" in the church because of Jesus, not because of other people. And your "fitting" may just be the key to another piece of the puzzle fitting.

I want to ask you questions: Is the part of you that says you belong to this church the emotional part? Is the other part of you that says you don't belong is the rational part-the one that dig into doctrines? What's your reason for joining a church? Are you joining a church for socialization purposes only? Or are you joining a church because you are convinced with the truth carried by the doctrines of the church?

**The Bible states that my spirit will agree with "your" spirit.**

Does it? I see nothing about the spirit of ANYONE named WIVV in the Bible.

Could you enlighten us as to where you are mentioned?

Part of what you are listening to may be your flesh. You do need to seek God. What does down deep inside of you tell you, if you truly belong to God, you should know what I am referring to. Do not listen to the flesh.

PeopleI do not wish to discourage you,lets take Phils advice Make a LIST what I want, what I am comfortable with.Its all I-I-I.what about what GOD wants? do we consult,what He wants?He says MY CHURCH Matt16,17-19--Yea, yea, yea, same old, same old, but it is the TRUTH & the truth will set you free. If you are looking for the real Holy spirit He is there & HE will NEVER TURN YOU OUT OR Away.That is the work of the deciever

I believe that the love you feel for that church is a good sign to stay. Because the word says do not forsake the assembling together and the enemy wants to confuse us and keep us running. Unless your spirit is grieved by something that came straight from the pulpit, you may be in warfare with the enemy and just need to stand firm.

You love the church How is your love for God? only you can decide weather you fit in or not by fasting and praying and allowing God to have His way not your will but allow His will to be done that will make the difference put the flesh under controll and let the devil know that he does not belong here for you are sold out for God. God Bless

God states He will give us the desire of our heart. So what is your desire? The Bible states that my spirit will agree with "your" spirit. For example: in returning to the states after 33 yrs., I really didn't know what church to attend. A number of churches were visted. This one church I walked into, I told myself, "This is it." At that time, I had met no one, knew no one, the service hadn't even started, and I was still outside. But, our sprits agreed.
---WIVV on 4/21/07

The congregation I have found to fellowship with lifts my spirit up & God has lead me to this place despite many "trial"runs. I put God first & didn't care about social part & he showed me where i need to be. Now all I'm doing is praying for my husband because even though he believes & has a personal relationship with God,he gave up on todays churches so he stays home, but go where God directs you, not people.

Take a visit or attend a service, if not services, in the church you wanted to be. Feel the atmosphere and do study the doctrines.
---Bebet3754 on 11/7/05

I would advise that you study the scriptures to find truth (not man-made traditions) for yourself. Then find a church that teaches that truth. If you fit in with Christ, that's all that matters.
---jerry6593 on 11/5/05

The first thing I would do is make a list of the aspects that you are looking for to be fulfilled by attending any church and the aspects of service you wish to provide to any church in the order of importance to you. Then check off the aspects that are being fulfilled by you current church association. If most of the desires are being fulfilled stay where you are; if not you have a list that you can use in seeking a new church.
---Phil_the_Elder on 11/2/05

You need to be led by the Holy Spirit. The word tells us; Trust in God with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him & He'll direct your path. 3 things are very major, you'll ever make in your life; Salvation, Who your pastor will be & Who you'll marry. Where you worship is very important to your walk with God. Go to the word & seek Gods will. The Holy Spirit is there to lead & guide you in all truth. He'll tell you. The word says to ask, seek and knock.
