Just so you know, the church Jesus is talking about in the bible isn't a physical building or any kind of denomination. The real church is within
a person, and is built on wisdom and knowledge. You don't really need a church in the manner you are seeking.
My grandma was Methodist, and I went to church with her a few times when I was a kid. They were pretty mellow really, and really nice people. I
don't know if it's because the area was so rural(it was half a mile walk to my grandmas mailbox) or what, but I can honestly say they were very down
to earth people, and not a bunch of judgmental people like you see alot of times.
My grandma was always going to gospels and such, she loved them.
I sampled alot of churches as a teen, going with friends and such. In terms of how nice people are in general, another church I found with nice
people was the Church of Christ. They were really nice people, and I have the utmost respect for those I knew in that church. The kind of people
you never heard even a cus word out of. And so much so, that I(a bit of a hoodlum back then, i was hustling the streets at 16) would watch my mouth
around them out of respect. I would hang out with them a good bit when I was trying to stay outta trouble. And even though I was not like them,
they were never anything but polite and such. I'll probably always remember them, because I have traveled the US and never meet anyone like them
anywhere else. I really can't say enough good things about them, and these were teens, not grown adults.
I don't know if it's just that 1 church or what, but if I was going to think about going to church, I would give those 2 my first look. I went to
many many different kinds of churches growing up, pretty much all the major ones in the south(except catholic, but it's not really major there), and
those 2 stood out to me.
But I have no real idea on what their actual beliefs are. But judging by their fruits, I'd say they were good. They certainly focused alot more
on Jesus rather than telling everyone they are going to hell.
