Saturday or Sunday: Which Day Should We Go To Church To Worship God?

For some years now, I have heard Christians debate about the correct or biblical day to go to Church and worship God. Some Christians are of the opinion that Sunday, the first day of the week, is the day we should attend church.

The category of Christians who uphold attending Church service on Sundays are either members of Protestant Churches, Pentecostal Churches or African Indigenous Churches (the churches founded by Africans).

Other set of Christians are of the opinion that we are supposed to attend Church service on Saturdays, also known as Sabbath. This category of people affirmed that it was supported and ordained by God when He said we should remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy, as recorded in Exodus 20 verse 8 to 11.

The category of Christians who uphold attending Church service on the Sabbath day (Saturday) are majorly members of the Orthodox Churches, except members of the Catholic Churches and the Anglican Churches.

Furthermore, they were of the opinion that Sunday worship began when the famous Roman Emperor, Emperor Constantine, who was converted to Christianity, declared that Sunday will be the day of worshipping God in the Church instead of the Sabbath (Saturday).

This argument is still rampant in the Christian community till this day. Some are saying Sabbath day, while others are saying Sunday.

In your opinion, which day should we attend Church service? Please note that the Church service I'm talking about is not weekly programmes. Please your sincere and candid opinions are needed in the comment section.
