Why Attend Church?

Posted in:


  • Article Image Alt Text

Why should you attend church? I have heard some make the statement that “I do not have to attend a church to live for God”. And one can certainly try, but I am afraid that it would not be a very healthy and encouraging daily walk. Life gets very hard at times and we all need somebody to lean on. We need someone to encourage us, pray for us and we all need to feel the warm embrace of a hug sometimes. It is important for us to be connected with the body of Christ which is our church family. God is always with us where ever we are but he also uses others to be his hands and feet.

The Bible tells us that church is important. In Hebrews 10:25 it says “And let us not neglect our meeting together, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” The worship of God and attending church r e g u larly go hand in hand.

F i r s t o f a l l , God created the New Testament church.

In Matthew 16: 18, Jesus says “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” For centuries, God’s people, followers of God, like the Israelites have gathered together for worship.

The Bible refers to the church as Christ’s bride. It’s not anymore okay for us as Christians to neglect church than it would be for a wife to avoid her husband or for a husband to neglect his wife. Going to church is a regular practice of a faithful believer. Scripture is filled with examples of people attending church and the things involved with church attendance.

When we make it a point to go to church, we are demonstrating faithfulness. As believers, joining together in worship has to have a priority in our lives. Scripture repeatedly points out the importance of being united and staying steadfast in our gathering together. By attending church, we encourage other believers, demonstrating love both of God and for others in the process. Through the church, people are able to come to know God, while believers are edified and grow in stature, maturing in the Lord.
