I’m looking for an ideal church where the MEMBERS ARE…
always friendly. Always smile. Always say and do the right things.
Always help, serve and volunteer for the things that the church needs.
Always reach out to me—even when I don’t express my needs. They just know what I need at all times, and are always there to provide it.
And they should be. They’re members of the ideal church.
They give. They serve.
They never have a bad attitude and are always Christ-like in the way they treat me.
And if they were not, I wouldn’t go. I’m looking for the ideal church.
I’m looking for an ideal church where the VISITORS ARE…
welcome. The church I’m looking for accepts everyone just as they are, but has unwavering values about what’s right and what’s wrong.
In addition to all this, the church I’m trying to find is well-funded, has everything it needs to minister to everyone who comes, with whatever their need might be, no matter how large or small, and meets all of my expectations—whatever I need from it—but never asks its members to financially support what it does.
After all, the ideal church would never just be about money.
And if they did start asking me—I wouldn’t go. I’m looking for the ideal church.
I keep looking for the ideal church.
I’ve been to quite a few.
They always seem ideal at first—at least most of them. But I can’t seem to find the ideal church no matter how hard I look.
The churches around here are far from ideal.
