Hi I’m Teresa. I’m originally from South Georgia but I’ve lived in North Georgia for the past 9 yrs. I’ve been looking for a church that teaches the Bible word for word and doesn’t pick out certain scriptures and use them for their purpose. Someone that can teach what the word really says with no soft soaping.
I hope to contribute by asking questions that might be of interest to someone who’s afraid to speak out about their feelings.

Welcome to Connect, Teresa. It’s great to hear of your passion for knowing Scripture more deeply, and I wish you the best on the church hunt. It can be long but finding a community of believers is worth it. Looking forward to learning more from your contributions here.

A warm welcome to you, Teresa! @Ttfrier :slight_smile:
So glad you’ve joined!

Welcome Teresa, my name is Tina. I share your needs also. I’m 59 and have seen so many deceitful people and teachers. It’s so hard to find a truly God seeking person that can back up their statements with scriptures. I just found RZIM a few months ago, but in my humble opinion, I believe this is the real deal! I spend hours listening to RAVI ZACHARIAS on YouTube. I have already learned a lot. I found somethings that I thought were true and vice versa. God bless you and welcome!

Keldon, does RZIM have weekly services that my husband and I can attend or are most things done through podcast?

Very good question @Ttfrier. RZIM does not have church services, but RZIM has daily and weekly podcasts that are very good: https://www.rzim.org/listen/just-thinking (Just Thinking is a daily 15 minute M-F devotion type podcast), and https://www.rzim.org/listen/let-my-people-think (Let My People Think is a weekly 30 minute devotional podcast). They also have many seminars and events. If you are interested in books, I know that @Ivy_Tyson is hosting “Cover to Cover,” which is a book study and review discussion. Check it out at: https://www.rzim.org/listen/cover-to-cover.

What city in North Georgia do you live? I can ask for some referrals in the connect community. I have faith a church that is bible direct is in your future. :slight_smile: I will help if I can. Best to you.

I’m open to suggestions for church or churches to visit. We live 1 mile from Reinhardt University in Waleska. If you know of anywhere that is a good teaching church please let me know.
Thanks, Teresa

I just looked at https://www.waleskafirstbaptist.org/

Seems pretty decent. Pastor has a message on Timothy that you might want listen just to get a sense of style, thoroughness, etc.

My best to you as you search for community.
