Looking for a non-denominational church
 
I have a non-denominational church I love in Wisconsin. Does anyone know of one they like around The Villages?

Live Oaks Community Church is Evangelical Free, but very similar to a non-denominational church. Bible centered, very friendly, only 5 years old- We just had our Grand Opening in our new facility behind the Walmart on 466. We've always gone to non-denominational churches & love LOCC.

What exactly IS a non denominational Church?

Definition...Non Denominational
Open or acceptable to people of any Christian denomination.

All Christian churches are open to anyone. My understanding of non denominational is an independent church not beholding to any hierarchy.

My understanding is that non denominational churches are open to Christians that might hold different interpretations of the bible.
But some Christian churches such as the Catholics might not find non denominational beliefs acceptable.

It seems the OP is looking for a non denominational church that would be very open to her particular Christian beliefs!

Catholics are not taught to believe the literal interpretation of the Old Testament. I would guess because it is often confusing and conflicting and would often reference traditional rules Jews lived by which doesn't relate to doctrine and faith of the New Testament.

Please explain how that applies? I see you edited your post.
So that is a particular belief held by the Catholics, and you mention a key word "doctrine"!
I was raised and grew up as a Catholic, and practiced the faith for many years.
Then after some twists and turns of life,
I attended and belonged to a couple of Christian non denominational
churches for a number of years.
My observation...they are all Christian churches,
but are yet quite different.

Isn't this a church that does not take money? Is there such a thing?

No... most will take what ever denomination you put in the basket!
