I especially like the expository preaching style of the pastors. I look forward to being a part of LOCC as we impact our community(ies) in novel ways.

Thumbs up About EFCA

The Evangelical Free Church of America's Statement of Faith could easily have been written by a Southern Baptist leader. The EFCA came into existence in 1950, with strong Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish roots.

In fact, a notable member of this denomination is Chuck Swindoll, former President of Dallas Theological Seminary where large numbers of Southern Baptist preachers get their seminary degrees. Chuck Swindoll founded Insight for Living, headquartered in Plano, Texas, which airs a radio program of the same name on more than 2,000 stations around the world in 15 languages. He is one of my favorite radio preachers.

The EFCA, like Southern Baptist churches have a de-centralized structure, in which no central authority can direct any particular church to behave in any particular way. They are characterized as "Congregational" churches, which means that each local congregation is autonomous and directs its own affairs.

Is an EFCA church right for you? Check out their Statement of Faith.

I just named a few.

Purgatory is not part of the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, not for many, many years. Other Christians are not offered Holy Communion, the bread and the wine, but ALL people are invited always to attend our daily church service, which we call the Mass. Catholics are taught that abortion is taking a life but it is very difficult to find a Catholic anymore that doesn't use birth control. At this time only men are priests, that is true, but most of us Catholics expect that to change and soon.

OP is seeking a non-denominational church. Please stay on topic.

If you wish to discuss Catholicism or other religious topics, start a new thread.

To the OP....if you do a Google search for non denominational churches in your zip code,
a long list will come up, and then you can check them out
to find one you feel comfortable with.

I too was brought up Catholic and left when I felt it was just about money power and control. I used to do the books for several parishes and found that all of the collection money went straight to the archdiocese. We like the non denominational churches because they are more about praising God and less about eating meat on Fridays in lent.
