I was new to the area 3 years ago. The firsprst year I went church shopping. I went to 15 churches. At 6 of them, the topix of Jesus Christ never came up. A three others. They hated on the president. Some are just hate groups and gossip lots.
Look for ones with love.
Also, make yourself a checklist. If you go to a church and 9 of them ask you where you work, they are a STATUS church. Myself, I hate the STATUS church.
I fond two GREAT churches and the rest were a complete FAILURE. They aren't churches at all. OH one more thing. Check to see if the church is involved in anything aiding the poor. Here in bristol, there is a program called FAMILY PROMISE of bristol. It actually will allow a family to stay inside the Hoise of The Lord and feed them, etc....they get accredited by an organization that helps to fund them. But they must have ten churches involved to get accredited and funded. WOULD YOU BELIEVE THAT IT TOOK ALMOST 2 YEARS TO GET 10 local churches to hop on board?????
If they aren't helping the poor , the do not belong to Christ. Don't know what you're looking for. If you don't want the church to be about love and Christ . Than go to a beer bar. There's lots of nice ones of THISE too.
Back to subject... Tes probabaly more, but I only found two churches in the area that are REAL. I'm sorry, the other 13 churches had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH MY KING. NOTHING. SOME EVEN HAD SIGNS WITH HUS NAME ON THE FRONT LAWN.
What makes me mad, is the two churches that I found ae TOO far from my home to attend with regularity. I know that sounds nut, buts its the truth.
Calvary Chapel between Johnson City and Jonesborough.(I went with someone, so I wasn't driving so my diresctions are lousy, but if you need more info, just say so right here. And also, First Presbyterian in Elizabethton. The pastor follows Christ and is persecuted sometimes for it. He works in the ways of love and he's man enough to stand up to the nay Sayers". I just can get involved in a church that is 32 minutes from my home.
Next Thursday night, I am trying one on old Jonesboro rd in bristol. It's a bibke study. If this one doesnt work out, I will have attended my last church in Bristol, just bite the bullet and join one of these two. I've already told a friend that next Saturday I will purchase the auto that gets the best gas in the world.
Peace be Wth you.

I don't know anything about Calvary Chapel. But if you're looking for a church, start by checking their websites and facebook. You can learn a lot about a church that way. If these sites haven't been updated in a while, that would tell me that they don't care about attracting visitors.
Do you want a big or small church? Traditional or weird? Non-denominational or a specific denomination? Do you want a church where everyone is welcomed and accepted, or one where anyone not belonging to the Country Club is NOK?(Not Our Kind)

Calvary church is all about money and your status ////i would call it more of a social club than anything else. Its all about what you can do for the pastors. They forget the meaning of the title "servant". They are just like any other church out there the pastor's are their God. They travel all over the world drive nice cars have very nice homes. Every outing or extra activity at the church costs money money to attend even a pot luck dinner that the church members bring. "Fund raisers" they call them we give me a brake. Churches are not about God they are expensive social clubs and gossip mills you are better off by getting some friends and having bible study and prayer but stay away from that church horrible
