There are several factors that can contribute to making a good church, and these can vary depending on individual perspectives and beliefs. However, here are some key aspects that are generally considered important:

  1. Strong sense of community: A good church should foster a strong sense of community among its members. This can be achieved through regular fellowship opportunities, such as small group meetings, social events, and volunteer activities. People need to know the love of Jesus Christ!
  2. Spiritual growth and development: A good church should provide opportunities for spiritual growth and development. This can include regular worship services, Bible studies, and classes that help members deepen their faith and understanding of Scripture. Teach God’s word!
  3. Outreach and service: A good church should be actively involved in serving its community and reaching out to those in need. This can include activities such as feeding the homeless, supporting local charities, and organizing mission trips. Make God known through helping others!
  4. Relevant and engaging worship: A good church should provide worship services that are relevant and engaging for its members. This can include incorporating contemporary music and good ‘Ol Hymns, and technology, and creating a welcoming atmosphere that invites people to participate. Above all, the church should be preaching and teaching out of God’s word, the Bible.
  5. Effective leadership: A good church should have effective leadership that is committed to the church’s mission and vision. This can include pastors, elders, and other leaders who are accountable, approachable, and focused on serving the needs of the congregation. Those in leadership must have a heart of service and humility.

Ultimately, a good church should provide a place where people can feel welcomed, supported, and encouraged in their faith journey and teach and preach God’s word, the Holy Bible.
