  • Did you ask this yesterday or the day before? I grew up Methodist. We now attend a independent protestant church that is spirit filled.

  • We attend a large Assembly of God church, and no we weren't raised AOG. I was raised Southern Baptist, and DH was raised Independent Baptist. We went to the Baptist church for awhile, and then eventually ended up at a Non-Denominational. That's where we were all saved and baptized.

  • I was raised Christian, and I still consider myself Christian, though I'm constantly cultivating my faith through further study/discussion/contemplation/etc. I was baptized Catholic and spent the first few years of my life in church there, then had time in a Pentecostal church before my parents settled on Methodism. I consider myself a Christian Universalist now, though I've not really changed my beliefs, they've just grown. I tend to be unorthodox, though my mother never really pushed orthodoxy. She encouraged thinking outside of the box, considering things for ourselves. So I've been doing my own thinking and study for as long as I can remember. But I believe faith is about the growth, the journey, and not about the arrival at one stagnant way of thought, if that makes any sense...

    What I'm trying to say is just because I was Christian and still am Christian doesn't mean my faith hasn't grown or progressed....

  • As a child, I knew my mom believed in God but we only went to church a few times. I now have my favorite church and it is not the same one.
