Which church and denomination to convert to?

Suppose you're new to Christianity, say for example you're converting from another religion or formerly an atheist. How do you decide which denomination to follow and which church to attend? I know plenty of folks who simply attend the church closest to them. If the nearest church is a Methodist church, that's the one they're going. If the nearest one is CHC, then that's the church of their choice. And there exists some people who thinks "I spent the last 10 years in the Philippines, therefore I should convert to Catholicism".

So how do new converts choose which denomination and church to convert to?

Re: Which church and denomination to convert to?

I attend both a Methodist and a non-denominational church and neither have ever made me question their preaching, because what they preach is supported by the Bible and does not contradict it.

Most new Christians from my experience would have been introduced to the faith by someone they know, or someone they met (e.g. street evangelist), and will therefore simply follow the person to their church / denomination. It's much easier than choosing a church out of the blue and visiting it without actually knowing anyone.

Re: Which church and denomination to convert to?

Do your own research and decide for yourself. See which church you are most comfortable with.

Re: Which church and denomination to convert to?

Well, you can wait for God's calling. Although I must tell you that the Catholic Church is quite different from other Protestant denominations. We are actually quite traditional. One thing I must tell you though, don't go to church just for the fun of it. I'm not commenting about the other christian denominations here, so don't get me wrong. But it seems that I have a few friends who go to church for the "songs and live band" there. Honestly, if you go to church for just that, you might as well go to a pub, right? Well the Catholic Church isn't that boring too. We do have Praise and Worship groups too! Though rarely we have that kind of entertainment during mass. (Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) Well, I believe that as long as you're a follower and believer of Christ, and you seek God with a pure heart, you'll still be saved regardless of what denomination you are. As for that question, I feel that it's a personal decision and no one other than yourself should decide for you. Although I'm Catholic, I'm making it clear that I'm not biased here!! Keeping you in my prayers

Re: Which church and denomination to convert to?

honestly, i think there is no need to decide between denominations these days but I'm referring strictly to the denominations under the Christian faith ie. Methodist, baptist, pentecostal, etc. I don't know enough abt Catholicism to comment on that.

These dominations under the Christian faith don't defer much in terms of core Christian beliefs and teachings. The main differences lie in the way they conduct their worship services and the songs they sing.

Thus, i suggest that you just visit different churches and find the one that you are most comfortable with. Find one where you feel ministered to, where the preaching really touches you and teaches you. Also find one with a strong cell-group culture as they are the backbone of any healthy church.

Re: Which church and denomination to convert to?

I would be careful of churches that preach that Jesus was rich, and/or that material wealth (money) is guaranteed for Christians. I don't recall any of that being from the Bible. If I'm not wrong, it's called the prosperity gospel. Also, be careful if they preach that once you're saved, you're always saved. Christianity is a journey and it's guaranteed to be quite challenging. Jesus himself said, give up everything and follow me. He didn't go around offering contracts / certificates / etc. If a church preaches otherwise, I'd recommend you look for another church.

Baptist Church is the real church which they don't speak in tongues and sing traditional hymns. Other churches are far too modern.

I don't care about denomination.
I care about whether a church loves Jesus.
