New England Churches

April 7, 2009

Hubby and I are still church hunting.  And we are becoming more and more depressed with each passing week.  Let’s compare the two types of churches that we have found so far.

Church Type 1:  Culturally relevant, emerging, hip, cool, growing in numbers, but Biblically lacking and not growing spiritually

Church Type 2:  Biblically sound, provides fertilizer for spiritual growth, but legalistic, “dated”, and not growing in numbers.

But we are looking for a third type of church.  A church that is Biblically sound, but not stuck in the dark ages when it comes to things like worship and technology.  A church that encourages spiritual growth as well as numerical grown, but will not compromise the first for the second.  A church that holds to Biblical truth without taking out parts it doesn’t like or adding rules that aren’t there.

Newsweek says, “The percentage of self-identified Christians has fallen 10 points in the past two decades.”  And says that we are facing an “end to Christian America”

According to the 2009 American Religious Identification Survey, not only are more Americans claiming to have “no religion”, but New England, where I live, is now the most secular area in the country.  New England, once the home of both the First and Second Great Awakening is now the home to squishy liberals, quasi-Evangelicals, and ambivilant, apathic areligious.

So I guess that it is no wonder that we are unable to find a good church.  But there has got to be other Christians like us in New England.  Christians who are fed up with the morally relative, culturally relevant, mumbo jumbo that we are being spoon fed in so called Evangelical churches here in New England.

    It’s a mess. I, a pentecostal, was an eyelash away from visiting a church that believes in the Regulative principle of worship!
