At the end of May, I will be moving my family to Western Tennessee, near Middleton to be more precise, so we will be looking for a new church. I'm sure many of you in the area would graciously receive us with loving arms extended, but I'm hoping for a good fit. It's important to have strongly held beliefs affirmed.
Our beliefs our not exactly in the mainstream, so I will list some things I'm looking for. PLEASE don't reply to argue against my beliefs. That would be counter productive. I also realize that I might not find all of these in a church, but a reasonably close fit will help us be more comfortable. I am willing to make a significant drive in order to worship with like-minded brothers and sisters.
1. Teaches straight from the Bible - Not topic of the week
2. Not Calvinist
3. A holiness perspective-Close to John Wesley or Charles Finney teachings
4. Homeschool friendly
5. Teaches modest dress standards
6. Encourages courtship rather than dating
I thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
