When you first start treading the boards of this other Kingdom reality, it is helpful I think, to have a rooted and grounded family of believers around you. Those who "build you up in the faith". I had many amazing and defining people and experiences in the early days of my discovering who Jesus was, how loved I was (that took years and years) and what he had done in me. People who loved me and cared for me, and believe me that was not an easy task. I was a troubled teenager, in a troubled country with troubled parents!!
The fellowship I attended during those early few years was my safe place. They were of the "Pentecostal" variety which in the 70's in Africa was not very established and rather new. So I learned a breadth of gospel, although it was not until years later I grasped the enormity of the whole gospel, that understanding of Christ IN me, and "no longer I, but Christ"! So if you are part of a life giving body of believers when you are first brought into new life, then, as a nursery I think local congregations are wonderful homes for new believers. If that same local congregation is of a structure that is living and breathing and growing, that does not seek to control that life of God that is growing in you, but rather trusts the Spirit of Christ to lead you into all truth... you are blessed indeed.
If they also give you wings to fly more permanently than Red bull, allow you to make mistakes and grow in all that God is showing YOU, and by example demonstrate how to truly be Jesus to this world - you will have found something rare and precious and worth walking in for a while.
