Are You in the Right Denomination?

I can see some of you now getting defensive, thinking Matthew is going to start promoting a denomination. This boy won’t do that because I’m a nondenominational pastor. Everyone can now breathe a sigh of relief😀.

I talked with someone today that I have not talked to in several years outside a few Facebook comments and messages. He was telling me about some major news within the denomination with which he is affiliated. I mentioned to him that I have not kept up with denominational news like I once did. He told me that he did not get caught up in the denominational social issues. At the end of the day, what matters most is that Christ is the only way to Heaven. He and I had never really discussed church matters, but his comment truly focused on what matters most.

I know that some of us were taught to be “fighting fundies”. I gave up on fighting about secondary issues a long time ago because I care more about people’s souls. My heartbeat is to train them and help them grow.

I know some have denominational pride. That is fine for you. However, denominational labels no longer define all churches that possess the same label. We continue to have splits and splinters. I have resolved that I just want to be as close to the Bible as I possibly can.

Please do not lose sight of the fact that Jesus is the answer, and the Bible is our guideline for living. If you really want to know the truth, the Holy Spirit will guide you. Those are promises you can take to the bank.
