How do you find a church?

I am having trouble fitting into the mold of one church or another. I dont believe everything about the religion, and I dont want to be preached to, to try and change my personal beliefs. I know, I am going to need someone (God) to get me through the next phases of my life, but Im not sure how to ask. Anyone have suggestions?

  • Use the belief o matic to narrow down a denomination for you and go from there:

    You'll get a list of about 20ish different faiths in order of how well they match up with what you believe.

  • Why not find a UU Church? They tend to be rather liberal and don't push people to change their beliefs to fit any one mold.

    You can easily run a search with your zip code and find one close to you.


    Good Luck!

  • Can you ask family and friends? I have found getting comfortable into new churches very difficult. So many of the members have been there their entire life.
