Why Church? (Series)
Is it really that important to be a part of a local church? Can’t I just have a personal faith and that’s enough? We jokingly call these Christians, “Bedside Baptists” when I was growing up. I did my best growing up to always be sick on Sunday mornings. Sometimes my mom would buy it but usually I would end up having to with my mom and my brothers. Before I received Jesus I didn’t like going to church. After Salvation I looked forward all week to Sunday morning. The church didn’t change, I changed.
Hebrews 10:23-25 23
Let us hold unswerving to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 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.
So, if we understand that we should meet regularly together with other believers then we should see what God’s word says about what we should do when we meet together.
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
People often ask me, “how old your church?” They are surprised when I tell them it’s two thousand years old. After Jesus rose from the dead, He ascended to heaven, and His disciples started the first church called The Way. They experienced the same blessings and challenges that we face today.
