Re: Placing of fellowship at a local church

Dear email, Thanks for visiting insearchoftruth.org. I will try to answer your questions. Placing membership with a local church when you move to a new location is a Biblical practice. We read in Acts 9:26-30 that Paul when he came to Jerusalem after his conversion, he tried to "join the disciples" ...

Re: The Sovereignty Of God (Total Depravity)

Pardon my delay in responding, but I have been very busy the last few days. As I read what you have to say, there is much with which I agree.
