These are important characteristics to consider for the church you choose...

Followers of Jesus Christ - Your church should be Christlike.  Jesus taught about love.  In fact he said the greatest commandment was “to love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and love your neighbor as yourself.”  

Bible-based Church -  Is the Church leader quoting the Holy Bible and therefore quoting the word of God. 

Evangelical Ministry -  Jesus’ great commission was to “go to the corners of the Earth and spread the Gospel”  your church should be preaching the gospel and inviting the congregation to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.
