Bible believing churches in San Francisco Bay area

We have been asked by a good number of readers where they can find fellowship in the San Francisco area. Until recently, I have not had any idea where to send them. Before you in the Bay Area, in desperation, start a House Church, visit these churches, and see if they could meet your need for sound teaching and fellowship.

West Cliff Congregational Church

Here is a very sound Reformed church of zeal, whether meeting in the home or a church house. Former Anglicans who have gotten onto the narrow way may want to look these people up. You can learn how to find them on the linked page above.

Going Home From Charismatic Chaos

Hi Steve

Thanks for your article's

I am a 40 year old school bus driver living in Canada. and My family and I have left organized religion.

I was active in pentecostal charismatic churches for 25 years to the point of becoming an ordained minister.

Steve I was always oppressed. {Please note that I still believe in the gift of tongue's}

But the controling spirit I was under was a bondage that nearly drove me nuts. About 6 months ago my wife's job caused Her to begin working sundays. At that time I stopped going anywhere to church and began meeting her at home with my chidren and myself.

At first it was real hard. the codemnation and fear was bad Thought's like:

"You're just being rebellious"
Or, your kids won't meet good friends.
Or, you're not fulfilling God's calling on your life. -- This was the worst one

Well to make a long story short I am more free now than I have been in years. I have become convinced that organized religion is wrong. God gave a blueprint in Acts showing how people met in home's. The desire of people to have a priest or leader on earth to follow, other than Jesus is sinful.

Mt 23:8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

Sincerely Keith

STARTING A HOUSE CHURCH AFTER TAKING A STAND FOR THE KJV

Dear Steve:

I have been reading your journal I lost it after my computer crash and to God be the Glory my daughter found your web site: I have been praying about starting a church again . We have been checking out churches all over our area and their are not one that really stands on the KJV. As a Pastor we have been very disappointed . About church I have graduated from Liberty bible institute in Lynchburg Va.

Yes, Dr Falwell has fallen pray to the wolves what a sad day. when I had to part company with him I graduated in 1982. and shortly their after broke ties as I started a church and found out that our savior is the one in control of all things and that we are just his servant working for Him. When I took a stand on the KJV I immediately became and out cast to all clergy including my Baptist so called friends . I could not understand why they just did not keep to the old book instead of a new version which just brings confusion. SO I decided to stand alone Just the Lord and I . Then I fell sick had a heart attack and almost lost my marriage on top of it all what a valley to go through but as I prayed and trusted God . He did Miracle after miracle . He first saved my wife and healed my marriage. Then I received my strength back and was able to get a full time job because through all of this I had lost the Church which I started.

Now 7 years later my wife is diagnosed with fyeromyalgia . Praise God for trails they make us more like him but some get very heavy to bear . Now I am trying to start a church again We started in my home but God closed the door and I have been praying for an area to start one . We need strong KJV churches so pray along with me as to where we should start one . by the way I agree whole hardly with your article on defending our home land. keep up the Good work

God bless Brother Bill.

HOUSE CHURCH IN NORTH CAROLINA

Dear Brother Steve:

Just to let you know that we began a "house" or home church. I moved to NC and in this neck of the woods there is very little one can call a good church. I've been in the ministry 29 years and always have had ministries there were fundamental and Bible-believing churches. Always have used the trusty Old King James Bible. Always had an active ministry. Sad to say, however, when we came down to the "Bible Belt" we were amazed at what we discovered. A veritable "spiritual Disneyland" is the best description I can give it. Or should I say, a "spiritual wasteland"? It is tragic. So we began a home church and have found that this is going to be the only answer in the future. Of course, we have NO problems, sweet fellowship, the freedom to preach and teach God's Word the way it ought. We have no attendance problems and 100% turnout at all meetings. The Lord's Supper is lovingly observed. Who could ask for anything better than this? All that is gone is this "spiritual pride" and overzealous desire to be the "biggest church in town."

Of course, I have had to pay a price. I have had to do "tent-making" to supplement our income. But to have the liberty to do what we must - that price is well worth it. I feel that we are truer to the N.T. ideal than anything else. We know that the early Church met in houses - so we stand on solid Biblical ground. Plus we support worthy missionaries and do what we can to get the Word of life out to others. We are small but we are blessed. We are in a place where Christ Jesus is exalted and this little home church is indeed a sanctuary, an upper room, away from all the craziness we see within the "professing Church" of today.

May God grant in His grace millions more such "home" churches composed of folks whose knees have not bowed to Baal.

Keep up the good work of sounding out a certain sound!

Yours in Christ,

Robert K. Garrou
Pastor


Praise and Prayer Requests

YOUR SITE HAS TRULY BLESSED ME. ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO WE FOUND OUR SELVES WITHOUT A CHURCH. OUR HOME CHURCH WHERE WE WERE CALLED TO CLOSED DOWN. IT WAS NOT A TYPICAL CHURCH. WE DID BIBLE STUDIES ON SUNDAY NIGHT. WE HAD A TEEN NIGHT ON FRIDAYS AND YOUNG KIDS ON SAT. NIGHTS .

WE HAVE TRIED SEVERAL CHURCHES IN OUR AREA BUT DIDN'T FEEL LIKE ANY WERE TEACHING THE WORD. A LOT OF OUR CHURCHES ARE PREACHING OUT OF BOOKS NOT THE BIBLE. ANOTHER COUPLE HAD FOUND THEMSELVESS IN THE SAME SITUATION, SO WE STARTED GATHERING TOGETHER ON SUNDAYS FOR BIBLE STUDY. WE ARE STUDYING THE HOLY SPIRIT RIGHT NOW. WE BOTH HOMESCHOOL SO WE JUST LET THE KIDS PLAY.

NOW WE HAVE ANOTHER COUPLE THAT IS COMMING-- MORE KIDS. SHE HOMESCHOOLS TOO. FRIDAY NIGHT WE ARE STUDYING THE BOOK OF REVELATION. AN EX-PASTOR COMES FROM OUT OF TOWN AND IS TEACHING US ON FRIDAY NIGHT. WE EAT AND PRAY AND GET INTO THE WORD. I AM FINDING THERE ARE HOME CHURCHES OUT THERE. IT'S REALLY AWESOME.WE DON'T FEEL SO ALONE NOW.

THANKS AND GOD BLESS YOU.

Brother Steve;

What a great article on the present "one-man-army" system the church is now using. I have been trying to teach this for about eight years now. I met a pastor on a mission trip to Moscow in 1992 and he had led his church to change to an Elder led system of leadership. I studied the things he showed me and became convinced that this is the New Testament model. His church has staff people who are specialist in certain areas, but there is a clear understanding that they are specialist who have been trained in a given area (music, youth, early childhood education, etc.) but are servants to the Saints.

My son-in-law and I are currently trying to help a church recover from a "Jack-Boot" pastor , as you call them, and this is the very thing we feel that the Holy Spirit has led us to teach and work to establish in this church. It is amazing how much flack we are catching over this. Pray for us. This is a 2 million dollar property with an auditorium that will seat 500 people.

The first Sunday we were there, there was twelve people in Sunday School. Now that "the boss" is gone some of the former members are coming back to check out what is left. Again, thanks for putting this out there. I know you will have some heat blown your way for this. I will be praying for you.

Thanks for your site.

Ed Anthony
