    Church A
    They love bible study, love theology books, have a bookstore and a library. Love apologetics and are very friendly people. Seem biblically based however one problem is that they are not all that evangelistic. Few tracts on their wall and the people seem more content to remain in their walls.

    Church B
    They are not all that deep and the people do not love books nor deep bible study just the essentials of the faith. However they have a large tract wall, and many members can be found out witnessing and doing open air preaching. They love anything and everything evangelism.

    I would choose church A despite my love for reaching the lost I want to dive into the word and will reach the lost by myself.

    I would choose C or D. A church associated with Andy Stanley and Northpoint Ministries or one associated with Rick Warren.

    I know, "he" would be so excited as to be beside himself. Probably because he would be a member of a church whose mission is to take the gospel to the unchurched.

    I remember one church that did both large tract wall, lots of evangelism, and also deep in bible study.
