  • I wasn't saved until I was 27 years old, and I was saved in a fundamental, independent Baptist church, so I remain a Baptist and attend the First Baptist Church - Douglasville. We're not typically "big church" people, and so I was really surprised at how welcoming the church was and how small t felt once we got connected and plugged in to a Sunday School class and worked in the different ministries. I so love my church. It is the only thing I will regret leaving when my husband at long last takes me home to the Lone Star State!

  • I was at a knitting group and a female minister was sitting next to me. She saw my large gothic cross and asked if I believed. I told her that I believe in God but I don't know much past that. She invited me to her church - Unitarian Universalist. She told me that it was a nice place to start when you don't know. I showed up and sat quietly and just listened. I did that a few more weeks and then began to interact with people. It was nice.

  • Can you please try a Southern Baptist. They preach the Bible!

  • Lol, really?? just because you are a southern baptist doesnt mean everyone should be.

  • I was raised Southern Baptist and will likely never go back to one.

    I spent most of my adult life bordering on agnostic. Then I was listening to some music one day and felt God call me to go to church. I remembered a church (non-denominational) someone had mentioned a few months prior, looked it up, then showed up one Sunday. I definitely felt led there by God and it has been a wonderful experience so far.

  • 2mothershelpers, YOU asked about peoples church. You need to prepare yourself for all kinds of post. I was a southern baptist. I found it very limiting and constrained. Since becoming a pagan I do attend a Universal Unitarian and help lead ceremonies for Pagans and Wiccans. Yes we all learn about each other. Christians, Pagans, Agnostics Oh my... Those are just a few of the paths that walk in peace together. Bash if you want but it works for us

  • I grew up southern baptist. then i met my husband. I then converted to the church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. Every thing I have been taught makes sense. All my questions were answered.

  • I grew up Lutheran, then went to a Protestant chapel on military bases that we were stationed at, and now am going to a Baptist church

  • It took me 35 years but I finally started going to a Unity Church this year and I finally found my perfect fit. I can be ME and I love everyone there. It doesn't matter what path we're on. We're all GOD's wonderful creations. That's what speaks to me and that's what makes my spirit sing.

  • I was raised Southern Baptist. DH was raised Independent Baptist. We went for years,then fell out for a long time. When things got really bad,and I finally hit rock bottom, I KNEW we needed to be back in church. We found an amazing Non-Denominational that we loved! We,and the kids were all saved and baptized at that church. However, they just don't have a youth group there,and we could see our son slipping away. He had been going with a few friends to activities at a large Assembly of God church,so we tried it,and loved it,and that's where we are now,and I don't see us changing anytime ever. We love it there, the people,our son is active in the youth group.
