The Bizarre Story that Caused Us To Leave the Church We Married In

Our Unbelievable Story My wife and I met in the church that we would ultimately leave.  Neither of us grew up in the church but moved there the same year while we were both adults. She was led to the church from mutual friends who provided her a place to live after...

Load, Aim, Fire

I am new listening to your podcast. The one blessing of growing up in church is recorded below. I do not recall anyone mentioning this yet, but I could be mistaken. Or maybe this rich heritage was a unique feature of our church as the one true entity. I grew up in an...

Recovering Fundamentalist

I grew up in a fundamental Baptist church. Their philosophy was basically fix the outside first and the inside will follow. WRONG!! My parents didn't allow us to wear pants, they checked our skirt length and how low our shirts were daily using the three finger rule....

New Fundamentalisf

IFB to GARB

Hey you guys! What a breath of fresh air! I've been looking for a group of Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ and the authority of Scripture while kicking against legalism and strict tradition. I grew up in the IFB church culture until I attended a General...

A call to missions but not IFB missions

I was raised in a heavily IFB church/school with a pastor that is very well know IFB pastor/singer who I won’t mention because y’all Temple guys will know exactly who I’m talking about and I do not want to slander him or his congregation. My wife and I are currently...

Hi, I am already recovered,   Growing up in a church that hosted a camp-meeting every year in Indianapolis, I wanted to be the big evangelist for notoriety only. I received my opportunity as a teenager to preach one of the morning sermons every year. That opened...
