I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord."
Good Reasons To Be In Church
Because it is an act of obedience to God and it honors the Lord's Day;
We need to belong to a community of faith that is trying to live out the gospel;
So we can hear about and learn from the experiences of other believers;
To hear reminders of God's grace and love;
It is an alternative to the constant messages of a culture that ignores God.
I would like to invite you to join us for Worship. Scripture tells us that we should be gathering together.
"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." says Hebrews 10:24-25. "Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and teaching." writes 1 Timothy 4:13.
It is important to see that we are not alone. The body of Christ surrounding us, encouraging us, and praying for us is something we all need as we struggle and stumble in our faith journey. Christians aren't meant to be isolated in their lives with Christ. One day, we will worship God as the church universal, and it will be amazing.
"After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands." (Revelation 7:9)
