You always hear people talk about how they do not need to belong to a church to believe in God – well that is true.
That they do not need to go to church to worship God – that one is true too.
That you do not have to be in a church to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior – that one is very true.
Well…then why would you want to belong to a church?
The Lord commanded it. If you could do all of this on your own, why would God want you to belong to a church?
To build one another up – a church family prays for one another, encourages one another and supports one another.
Worship together – where two or more are gathered, I am there also, lifting each other up in worship.
Fulfilling the Lord’s plan – working for the Lord is always easier together, pooling resources helps more people, combining gifts reaches a larger variety of people.
Following the Lord’s commandment – how would you be baptized into a group of believers if there was no church involved? It is not only the first show of obedience to the Lord, but also makes your salvation public.
I love my church family and the minute I walk through the doors; it feels like home. That is the way the Lord meant for church to be – a place to feel loved and accepted. A place to call home.
Pray and God will guide you to your church home. Your new family is waiting.
