Okay, I’ve been reading this website for awhile now, and got up the courage to answer a few questions, so I’m going to come out and ask something.
I’m 17 y/o and I feel that God is telling me to go and find a church. I was playing piano for a church for a bit, but then I quit because they got a new pastor who was very unbiblical. Then I moved a couple states over to start college. My parents aren’t big church-y people-they tend to get irritated by that one person who’s a big hypocrite-but my mom says she thinks a church would be good for me, what with all the temptations that come in college and my dad says he’s willing to go with me when I go to a service of a new church so I won’t feel pressured or anything. But I really don’t know where to start. The church I went to was a small non-denominational church. Where I’m living now, all the non-dem. churches are the size of Texas with big light-up screens and huge ads and stuff. I don’t want to go to a mega-church. But I really don’t know what denomination to look at. I tried doing research on the Internet, but it’s so hard to make sense of all the theological twaddle. So, I guess what I’ve been taking forever to ask is what denomination would be right? I don’t want a sermon on why ___ church is wrong, I just want to know what all these denominations MEAN. Aren’t we all Christians? Any help on this would be appreciated. *fyi, I’ve already been to a Lutheran church, because my mom used to be Catholic, then didn’t believe, then became Lutheran, and I was baptized that as a baby, but I didn’t feel that that was where I should be.*
