I have been attending this church for a long time and what is most important about it is not the teaching or the music or any of that, but the concern they have about building a caring community in their city and around the world. I have many great Christian friends because of this church, and the fellowship is very authentic.

Went to this church while on vacation just two Sundays ago (6/24/07). Not once was the name Jesus mentioned during the service, not even after prayer ("in Your name we pray"). Not once was sin mentioned, just a general "no one is perfect."

Bible was not preached, the main points were from a psychologist. Bible was used to prooftext psychologist's points. Gospel was not presented. Just a push to expand Saddleback.

Rick Warren said "it's not about you", but many of the elements of this experience (tram from parking lot, people leaving right at offering, lyrics of songs, espresso, the main thrust of the message) was either all about "you" or about furthering Saddleback, not God's Kingdom.

Not sure if I had just gone to a Christian church. It could have easily have been a Disneyland experience. In fact, that's what I kept hearing from first-timers..."it's just like Disneyland!" As if that's a compliment.

Have some discernment. If you go here, you might as well go to Joel Osteen's health and wealth "church."

This is the church of Rick Warren, the author of the book Purpose Driven Life which is one of the best selling books ever. They have over thirty thousand members and all newcomers are welcome. They also hold small groups to make the church more personalized to its members. It needs to do so because of the size of the church. You should at least try it a few times. A first rate church.
