I get weekly phone calls and emails from people seriously hungry for a Free Grace church. They don’t have one in their area, and they suffer for it.
Bob and I usually encourage people to begin a Bible study at home and grow from there. But that is hard to do.
Or we tell them to try and find an FG-friendly Baptist, Brethren, or Bible Church that may be fuzzy on some things but are basically in the right.
Of course, the other option is moving.
In college, I lived on 4600 Hutchison St, in Montreal (we had the top floor of the white brick building). It was a colorful neighborhood. I loved it. There was a schismatic Greek Orthodox Church across the street. There was a Ukrainian Orthodox church down the street. A Baptist church founded by Armenians (not Arminians) was nearby, where I occasionally attended. And the whole area had a very strong Bobover Hassidic Jewish community. Needless to say, the food around there was awesome. Actually, the main reason I miss Montreal is for the food. But I digress…
That neighborhood consisted of ethnic and religious communities who chose to live near one another. That is a very natural thing to do. Contrary to what Enlightenment secularists would have you think, religion is not a private matter within the confines of your mind. The free exercise of the Christian faith involves the whole of life. It impacts your marriage, your family, your business, your…everything. Hence, Free Grace people need each other.
So maybe moving is an option you should consider.
There seem to be clusters of FG churches around the country. The one I know best is here in Dallas/Fort Worth. There are several FG churches here (see here and here and here and here and here to name only a few). There seems to be plenty of jobs here, too. The DFW area actually has a larger population than Scotland!
I also know the FG churches here tend to be smaller. Under 150 people. Often smaller than that. Believe me, we can use the people!
Hebrews 10:25 says this:
not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
We need to assemble together. But before that can happen, you may need to move near people to assemble with.
