Eastvale: Why Go to Church?

BY PASTOR ROBERT JEWETT

Pastor Robert Jewett Word of Truth Community ChurchWhile many people go to church for varying reasons, many others do not go to church for just as many reasons. Biblically speaking, it is the body of believers who are the church…not the building where they gather. This begs the question, “Why should anyone go to church?”

While many will argue, “I don’t have to go to church to be a Christian,” the reality is that going to church should strengthen our faith and encourage us to walk as Jesus walked. The Bible says, “Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near,” (Hebrews 10:24-25). Hence, going to church is about being built up in the Lord.

Going to church gives opportunity for individual believers to be encouraged and to encourage others. With all the cares of this world, it is easy to get our minds focused on anything but the Lord. By going to church, we are instructed in God’s Word, encouraged by fellow believers, and refocused on what truly matters.
