Default Guidelines on Choosing A Church Or A Fellowship

Have one that does not look to gimmicks in getting people to come to the worship service.

You do not need the Promise Keepers' program or any "movement of the spirit" when the focus and the fellowship should be on the Lord Jesus Christ: not Jesus and man's boasting in the flesh: not Jesus and a supernatural show that glorifies the coming and going of what they deem to be the Holy Spirit, errantly of course; but we are to strive to enter through the straight gate by keeping our eyes on the Son in relating to God the Father in worship and in prayer as Jesus is the One the Holy Spirit in us is still pointing us to go to so we can avoid false spirits in the world as well as false prophets.

Jesus is called the bridegroom for a reason as we are not to be an adulterous generation seeking after a sign nor place a yoke of bondage that many mighty men and nobles would respond to, for the name of Jesus is above every other name and that is the mind of Christ we should have in fellowship and in worship for the Father is not honoured nor glorified by honouring and glorifying the Holy Spirit for the Holy Spirit in us seek to lead us to not speak of Himself nor ourselves, but to testify and thereby honouring and glorifying Jesus Christ and thereby the Father as we are to be witnesses of the Son and serve nothing else in His name.

Keeping the faith is the good fight and learning of Jesus and all His promises to us is how we get to know Him and the power of His resurrection when we trust in His Word to be Our Good Shepherd as well as the Saviour for He is with us always: thus the just shall live by faith in the Son of God.

May God cause the increase as we are in the latter days as the call is to be ready for every believer that name the name of Christ to depart from iniquity by looking to the author and finisher of our faith as He is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless to His glory so rest in Him today.
