I'll be praying for your bitterness and resentment to wash away and be replaced by much more fulfilling and edifying thoughts.
Yes,I totally agree. All churches have some kind of root background and it makes no difference whatsoever. The main goal is what Port City Community is all about and that is reaching people and helping them walk with God. We are called to Him,not some denomination,religion or person. I will be praying for you as well.

Amber I ask you to please go and actually speak to Mike or one of the other pastors about your feelings since you are so vocal online about it instead of just trusting what one friend told you. A lot of what you have said in your posts is just simply not true and I've been going there for 7 years.

Is it a perfect church? No. Are there things I would do differently? Of course. Is there such thing as a perfect church? Nope.
Why don't they split into age groups instead. What are some man issues that would be so inappropriate that a women could not hear? I do understand generational cohorts of what others feel are appropriate, or not, to say in front of others. Age cohorts have significantly more impact on a persons life, than gender differences. I'm sure most 20-30 year old married couples would rather be mixed with their single friends and study together, than with older couples. Since co-ed was not listed I do not know if it is a choice, but I hope it is.

They do have small groups for pretty much every age group and there are some groups that mix single and married. They also have groups for marrieds with kids, without kids, pretty much anything you can think of!

I am looking for a good non denominational church. I have attended PC3 for a while but I am looking for something a little more. It is good but Im looking for deeper pastor. Can anyone suggest a charasmatic, spirit filled, on fire, and a excellent pastor for a non denominational church? I have found a few online looking around that I might try, anyone tried these?
1. Life Community Church
2. Covenant Church
3. Rock Church
4. Miracle Rock Ministries
5. Church on the Cape

Default Lookin 4a good Non denominational church w/ annointd pastor

The Lord says in His Word that women are to be submissive to their husbands. I know that if it was wrong for women to be in the pulpit I would not have been saved out of a sinful lifestyle I was living and grown as much as I have if it wasnt for God using Joyce Meyer to do a mighty work in my life. Through God using Joyce as a vessel I was delivered from alot of bad stuff in the secular world never to return, all desires died the day I cried out to God to get me out of that lifestyle in 2000. I am on a Mission to find an on fire non denominational church that stands out above the rest with an annointed pastor. I have been to PC3 and its good but Im looking for more. I'll know when I find it. Open to suggestions.

Port City Community Church in Wilmington, N.C. being billed as "contemporary, non-denominational" is deceptive. The beliefs of Pastor Mike Ashcraft regarding women are fundamental Southern Baptist! Women are not permitted to lead Starting Point Bible groups if men are in the group(women aren't suppose to teach men - they would be a distraction); the "surfer" pastor firmly believes that men are intended to be "the authority" in the marital relationship; he won't hire women in the childbearing age in any "responsible professional" position. His interpretation of the Scriptures on this topic are grossly flawed because he does not read them within the context (when, where, why?) that they were written. If the kind of marital relationship in which the man is to rule over woman is the result of sin (Adam & Eve) and not divinely ordered as in God's original Creation ideal, then why is this authority-intensive model commended rather than denounced by the good Pastor? To prescribe this kind of marital relationship is to live as if Christ brought nothing new to human relationships - which in fact He did! See: [url="http://portcitychurch.blogspot.com"]Spiritual Journeys. Perhaps if it was called Port City Baptist Church, there would not be 6,000 members! That's thinking outside the box, folks!

The Public has a right to know how a church views fundamental human rights -but you won't find these on the PC3 website! In His ministry on earth, Jesus repeatedly promulgated social equality & specified the same for His church before His ascension. Know how much domestic violence is predicated on the "rulership principle?" Wake up ladies and gentlemen - your salvation may depend on it.

I attended The Rock and Church On The Cape before settling down at Port City. Based on what you're saying,I think The Rock is more what you're looking for. Try them all for while and then decide. That's what I did when we moved here over seven years ago. It takes a long time to find the best fit for you.

We like the contemporary service at this church. People are friendly. Bands are good but the mix favors loud instrumentation which often drowns out the singing. Sermons are good but exceed the average persons' attention span...people often seen texting on their cell phones in the middle (of the sermons).
