Why Go To Church?

Heb 10:24 And let us consider and give attentive, continuous care to watching over one another, studying how we may stir up (stimulate and incite) to love and helpful deeds and noble activities,

Heb 10:25 Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.

  1. Literally, these two verse say that Christians must come together to warn each other and watch over each other, to encourage each other to do good deeds, especially (as the day of the Lord approaches). They say nothing about one’s whereabouts at 11:00 Sunday morning. We don’t “go to church”: we are the church!

    So why go to the local assembly of Christians at 11:00 Sunday morning? To worship Jesus Christ the Lord!

  2. Hi Helen,

    I agree that the “church” that is mentioned in the Scripture is a group of people that is called out by God. God wants His called out group not to forsake meeting together, as some that say they are called out will do. Yes, we meet together to worship the Lord in a physical place(known as a church in our modern society). However, I don’t believe we meet just for the purpose of an individual fulfilling their responsibility(and privilege) to worship God. Our faithfulness or unfaithfulness to services speaks volumes and has an influence on other members of the body. If we just show up for services when we feel like it or when it is convenient for us, what kind of message are we sending to a new convert or our even our pastor? We need each other just like our physical body needs all its parts working together to function properly and be healthy. Hope this makes sense.

    Jayleigh,

    I’ve heard people say before, “Oh, I don’t need to go to church, I can just worship God at home.” We do need to have our own personal devotions to God, but I believe it is clear in Scripture, that born again believers do need to meet together on a regular basis as this Scripture indicates. God calls his people a body, which is something made up of many parts that are supposed to work together.

  3. I bet you that you can concentrate on God, worship, pray, and feel God IN CHURCH better than at home by yourself.
    YES, you may feel you don’t need anyone else, but there are things that God put in you that others may need.

    Plain and simple: we are the Church, and as the Church, we need each other.

    “4Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” – Romans 12:4-5
