Why should I go to Church?

1. Because Christ said to: If we had no other reason

for attending church, this alone would be sufficient. If we are christians,

our love and loyalty to God should prompt us to obey whenever he

speaks. The Bible which is God’s word , tells us in Heb. 10:25, ” Not

forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is…”

It is Not True that you can be just as good a christian without going to

church. Failure to attend church (unless providently hindered) is an

absolute refusal to obey Christ.

2. Church attendance was practiced by

the apostles and early christians: If we have the

same kind of christianity that the new testament saints had, we will go to

church. One cannot read the Bible, especially the book of Acts and the

epistles without seeing the importance of the church.

3. Church attendance shows whose side

we are on: There is a very real warfare being waged between the

forces of truth and unrighteousness. Every man takes a side, either for or

against Christ. Church attendance is one way whereby we can show where

our allegiance is.

4. Church attendance provides us with

spiritual food: Just as the body needs food, so also the spiritual

man needs food. One of the places where we can get our spiritual food is at

the House of God. Paul told the elders of the church at Ephesus to ” feed the

church of  God…” Acts 20:28. We have so many anemic christians because

they have starved themselves by failing to feast on spiritual things.

Remember: Your profession of faith benefits no one unless you

demonstrate your love for Christ and His word, in the way that you live.

Make church attendance a regular part of your spiritual life.
