Over the years we have
gotten letters on a fairly regular basis from people who want to
know what a particular denomination is about, what they teach, and
what their history is. In our day of cults and people looking for
something new and exciting, this can be a major issue. The problem
is that the number of denominations is in the hundreds and finding
reliable information is difficult. If you contact a denomination you
will hear what they want you to hear and not an objective picture of
what their history and connections are, or even what they believe
about issues like communion, baptism, miracles, and discipline.
