Finding A Good Church

Churchgoers have often asked me: "How do I know that I am in a good Church?" This is what I say in reply: "Listen what the minister is saying, and listen what he is not saying." He (or she) may be saying that the Lord rose from the dead, there is eternal life for all who believe in Him, we should love one another, and so on. But this doesn't yet tell you that you are in a good Church. When one listens carefully, such preaching may miss critical points of the gospel -- such that it really cannot be considered the gospel at all. OBSERVATION: There are some useful summaries of the gospel at (click here) (bearing in mind that salvation from sin is just the beginning). Is any of it missing in your Church, or fairly much absent?
