Christian Churches, available for attendance to worship God and to receive from His written Word, are the most important institutions that exist. Nations that practice freedom of religion and worship are blessed to have this privilege and people of the world who desire this but who are not allowed this privilege, would love to trade places with us who do. The Church is also a place of sanctuary from the everyday problems we face in life.

One of the possible resulting effects of negative church experiences is that people seeking a Church-home or even those who are seeking relationship with God, may be discouraged from doing so, due to the improper actions and behaviors of Church Leaders and members. I do not believe that these problems exist in Churches on a wide scale but they do occur often-enough to merit honest recognition of them and sincere effort by the Leadership of Churches to prevent them from occurring, as much as possible.

There are good Churches available, where one can find avenues for true worship of God and true Christian fellowship. I have endeavored through examples and scripture quotes, to offer advice on how to avoid negative Church experiences and to find those that can add true blessings to one’s Christian walk and life of worship and praise toward God.
