Yes, Assembly of God are also good.

There are several great nondenominational churches in the area. Two I can speak on are Crossroads and Hope Community Church in Cary/Raleigh.

Both believe in full immersion baptism, but neither practice speaking in tongues. I believe both churches do recognize this is/was a spiritual gift, but as a few others stated 1)the use of it can be seen as exclusive to newcomers and nonChristians 2)it is a gift that was used by the Disciples to spread the Gospel to foreign nations, not really as applicable in today's society, but not ruled out or ignored as a gift. I recommend attending a service, and speaking with the pastor afterwards.

Providence and Colonial have services that are structed like nondenom. churches, more contemporary, etc.

Just my thoughts. . . hope they provide a little more insight.

We once discussed this with the Crossroads senior pastor since we listen to Joyce Meyer who believes in tongues.

He didn't condemn the practice but wasn't too enthusiastic about it. Crossroads doesn't have this in the worship services.

I'm kinda in the same boat. I have some atypical views on the gifts...
  • I don't believe that speaking in tongues is a requirement after receiving the Holy Spirit, and
  • I also believe that in the main worship setting, the biblical maximum of 3 times should be followed to maintain order.
And with that in mind, it has been very hard to find a church that believes in the same way. Most churches are to one extreme or the other.

I'm investigating Crosspointe Church at the moment, and have emailed them to find out more about their Holy Spirit doctrine. However, on their site, I was not able to find out anything about the exercise of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.... which probably means they don't really do it. :-(

However, I have listened to several sermons from them and am pleased with those.

Did you listen to Chuck Milian of Crossroads Fellowship or Mike Garrett of the same church on the web?
