What would a good compromise church be for a Methodist adn baptist that are married?

I was in that situation 25 years ago. Methodist churches do have some that are more evangelical than others.

Not to step on any toes but my spouse found the baptist churches in our southern town to be too judgmental for her Methodist upbringing. I found the Methodist church acceptable to my divergent beliefs in Bible study and I could still believe as a conservative baptist while still a member in the Methodist church.
