Church is the place Jesus designed for Christians to grow. If you believe in Jesus, you need teaching, accountability, and fellowship. He saved you to be part of his body, which is the church (Ephesians 5:23, Colossians 1:24). He wants you to grow in wisdom through the preaching of His Word; he wants you to practice grace in the fellowship of fellow Christians; and, he wants you to be generous in your use of his gifting.
Christians apart from the church do not lose their salvation. However, they do lack the design of God in their lives. You should go to church because it is God’s design. While Christians who don’t attend church may be able to listen to better preachers or musicians online, they miss out on the leading of God to help them grow in wisdom, grace, and generosity.
Going to church may at times be an inconvenience (toddlers, the quirkiness of others, conviction through preaching, etc.). But the benefit of growing in wisdom, grace, and generosity will positively impact individuals, families, and the community.
So, you should go to church.*
*When you are healthy enough to do so. Please do not join if you are sick or recently exposed to illness. We understand during the current health climate may preclude some from gathering with an entire church fellowship.
We desire to reach the cities of Clinton, West Point, Syracuse, Clearfield, Layton, Sunset, Roy, Hooper, and West Haven with the gospel.
