SHOULD CHRISTIANS ATTEND CHURCH?


An old question: "Can I be a Christian without joining the church or attending worship?"


Answer: "Yes, it is possible. But it is something like being:

a. A student who will not go to school;

b. A soldier who will not join the army;

c. A citizen who does not pay taxes or vote;

d. A salesman with no customers;

e. An explorer with no base camp;

f. A seaman in a ship without a crew;

g. A businessman on a deserted island;

h. An author without readers;

i. A football player without a team;

j. A politician who is a hermit;

k. A scientist who does not share his findings;

l. A bee without a hive."


Why should we go to church? The importance of assembling is both subjective and objective. It benefits the individual with spiritual stability and growth, and it benefits objectively by its positive effect on others. The church meeting is far more than a place for one to be entertained or to hear, for these can be accomplished through radio or television. The purpose for the assembling is for participation in worship and fellowship and with one another.


(From a sermon by Mark Schaeufele, New Life On Purpose: Worship, 1/22/2010)
