The best thing to do in finding the right church is to go to your Bible first. Most larger Bibles have a concordance in them that mentions many different subjects such as faith,giving, repentance,singing, etc. I would read every verse about such subjects and then you will be more equipped to chose the right church. Several groups have good young adult programs but don't join a program but go for the truth they teach.

You want a right wing or left wing church? Are you trying to reform from drugs? Is your marriage all messed up, are you trying to do the popular thing or are you really trying to find the Lord? All of these questions you need to answer. Pray to God to lead you.

I've had a helluva time with churches, seems I'm to nice and an easy target for unscrupulous, I have a family member who feels the same way as myself, and doesn't go to church for that very reason. Jimmy Swaggart for example was supposed to be the real deal preacher, yet he was caught multiple times picking up prostitutes.
Though I wanna say the name of the church I'll keep my mouth shut on that part, but a baptist church in Walnut ridge area members like to wife swap with the pastor and his wife.
You say how do I know this ? Long story,but, one of the women their messaged me on yahoo messenger this was probably about 5 yrs ago, she knew my family that went to the church, and she was a member also, then she asked me if I wanted to have sex with her. She then sent me a video file of the pastor doggy styling her from behind on the bed as her husband filmed it. And yep it was the pastor alright I knew him well from preaching my grandpas funeral. Suffice to say I declined the sex.

I had a relative who attended a pentecostal chruch at Hoxie, he talked me into joining his church, turns out the pastor was after everyones money, he had a prophecy conference and collected thousands of dollars. The prophecy conference was with a well known end times internet preacher (leaving the name out). Later that night I over heard the preacher and end times preacher in the back after everyone left laughing it up, the preacher laughed and says haha look at all this money we got from those idiots, and the end times preacher says does this make us wolves in sheeps clothing, and the preacher started laughing and made a howling sound, and then they both started laughing. the bastards were laughing about how they coned people out of money.

Pine Grove between Pocahontas and Ravenden is pretty good. If it's not to far to drive. Other than that, all I can give you is a link to a really good rock version of The Old Rugged Cross.

Swaggart? bwahahahahah...a true joke. As I said, I believe you should just visit as many as you think you must, be observant, read your Good Book some, and pray a bit.

Personally, I was very careful in my looking. I found some real jerks taking advantage of the people. Some were there to fleece the flock. Then, I found some power hungry people that would do most anything to have control over others. Some I found to be emotional nuts. Many were just keepers of tradition and didn't want to be troubled with seeing if they were right or wrong when it came to Scripture. Some were really dedicated to search the Bible, but a lot of those would search to justify their traditions, or rules of faith that had been established by their founders. I didn't find many that would promote free will offering. Nearly every one insisted on tithing and frequent offerings. I also found most would say "go to the church of your choice" but they thought they were more right than everyone else. I also found many members ant many of the growing churches were there more for the programs and social benefits than for spiritual ones. Well, I can tell you the whole mazed of so Christian religions both confused me and nearly destroyed what little "faith" I had until I decided that the open Bible and hard study was the only thing that would help me find true faith. I suggest the same for you. There are those out there who teach and practice the Bible for this law period enough to help you. Probably none of them are perfect because people are not perfect, so keep looking and searching the Scripture, your faith will grow, but it will be Bible faith and not some worthless passion for a false religion.
