Counsel to Those Looking for a New Church Geoffrey R. Kirkland It seems to be commonplace for people to be looking for new churches these days.

Christians today boldly and rightly assert that that those who worship God must worship Him in “spirit and in truth”. Christ has come and has died so that His people, Spirit-indwelt believers, may approach the Father at any time and at any place.
