The right church is one that teaches the truths of God’s Word— beginning with Genesis and all the way to Revelation. There are core doctrines that all Christians must believe and all Christian churches must teach (For the core doctrines, read: What is IVDAR? Or IVDARR?). A good church will teach that:

  • God is the Creator of all things, the Saviour of all mankind, and the Sustainer for those who are His.
  • Man sinned and the wages of sin is death.
  • Jesus Christ is God who came in the flesh to pay the price of man’s sin.
  • Jesus freely offers forgiveness and salvation to any who will receive Him by faith.

Look for a church that faithfully teaches the Bible and you’ll likely find one that stands firm on all core Christian doctrines.
