I've come to respect the opinions and expertise of the Bros. and Sis. here and I was hoping you guys might check out www.aaocf.webs.com and look at the Home page and tell me what you think about what I have written there.
I'm hoping to have a site, and local fellowship offline, where everyone even slightly Christian (heh) would be able find quality Friendships, Employment, help with life issues. Not dogma, rules, and people looking for donations for their building funds when they already have a building they can't fill (LOL).
I need council.... please help.
Ok... here the text I would like you guys to comment on. Remember, it's the first thing people will read on the site for a Open Multi-Denominational Forums site for Local Christians...
"Welcome to the AAOCF Website. Hope you enjoy the Fellowship!
AAOCF is a non-church affiliated group for Christians in the Alvin, TX area who want to connect with other believers who value a Non/Multi-Denominational Online presence and Community (Seperate from the "World")/Fellowship (United with others in Christ) where Christians who are in Alvin, and the surrounding towns can come and Fellowship with one another 24/7.
AAOCF is not here to replace any local church bodies.. but to Support and Edify them all as an extension of the Body of Christ. This Community/Fellowship IS NOT and NEVER WILL BE a church of it's own, ran by a specific church, non-profit, group or individual (not even ME) exclusively.
By the Grace and Mercy of God, I will be in Unity with all Children of God, usually and preferably at the expense of my Self. I commit myself fully to God and to you all... even IF most who participate in this Community/Fellowship do not do the same.
I hope to find others of a similar mentality and belief to hold me (and each other) accountable to the Lord. In the Body of Christ, there is NO "us" and "them". Even those in the "World" will serve the purposes of God... it's up to our Free Will (our Surrendering it to God) whether we will be a type of Pharoah or Moses.
We are not here to preach AT or judge one another, but simple to LOVE one another in Relationship, and only in the ways that God Himself shows us individually and personally. Only God can fix anyone and only He can reveal any real Truth to us.
With these things in mind (and our hearts) please feel welcome and free to participate in our Community/Fellowship, as the Lord Himself leads you (by His Spirit) to do.
Reasons for the existence AAOCF:
When I (Webster "Weaver" Fields Jr.) came to the Alvin area, I began looking online to find any Christian community in the area and could only find limited information about local churches. I hope to help contribute to change in this area, for myself and others, by providing this site and community.
Also, I feel led by God to personally find ways to bring our Christian brothers and sisters of all denominational, social, economic, and political backgrounds together. This is one of those ways. If you want to find out more about me then check out my personal site at http://www.brotherweb.webs.com/.
I believe in the Will of God to continue in the present day Church the type of Unity found in the Early Christian Church (Acts 2).
To accomplish this will not be by the EFFORT or DESIRE of man, but by the MERCY of God... so don't worry about a bunch of rules or cult-like intrusion into or control of your personal life. We are not about anything like that and if anyone makes you feel uncomfortable or like they are trying to manipulate you, then let us all know about it... and follow the scriptures (Matt. 18:15-17). "
Ok, that's it..... Suggestions?
