'Why Go to Church?'

Sunday mornings at church are a time to make new friends and renew old ones; to learn about the Bible and share problems as well as to thank & worship God for another week of life.

When you become a Christian, you are called into a relationship with God (1 Corinthians 1:9). But I John 1:3 makes it clear that we enter a fellowship that goes two ways: with God and with other Christians.

The objective in going to church is to seek to build our relationship with God and others. Many people go to church to fulfill an obligation through some ritual or other reasons.  Church worship is all about an encounter with God and others that changes who we are. 

The word "church," is translated from a word that mean an assembly of people. More than just that, it means, an assembly of different kinds of people with a common starting place. The word is ekklesia, and that common starting place is the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

(Matthew 18:18-20 NIV)  "I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. {19} "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. {20} For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
