I have visited your church many times having family and friends associated with your church. I must say that for a ‘free’ church who don’t follow traditions of man, you sure have a lot of man made laws within the church.

I am now a Greek Orthodox priest in Chicago whose congregation is Full of former Evangelicals..Most became Orthodox when reading the early church Fathers and realizing the Church was Orthodox from the begining.
