Why Going To Church Is Important As Christians

As Christians, we are asked not to forsake the gathering of the brethren. The gathering of the brethren in our society today can be referred to as the church. The church is the place where Christians gather and worship God. It can also be referred to as the temple of God Almighty.

We get to meet different people in the church. People whose understanding is above us in the Christian faith, and people whose understanding is below us. We learn from those whose understanding is above us in the faith and teach those who are below us. The minister is also there, whom God has ordained to teach and direct the church. They teach the people how to build their faith and broaden their hearts in the things of God.

Therefore, we must try as much as we can as Christians to go to church. This is important because the church is God's idea, and it was established by Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity. Matthew 16:18 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

We are privileged to learn deeply about the word of God and how to build our faith from the ministers of God's word. We get to meet people from diverse part of the society and interact with to get more understanding of the things that confuses us. And mingle with them just as the Bible instructed. Two Corinthians 6:14 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?”

Lastly, we can practice our God-given gifts in the church. 1 Corinthians 12:28 “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healing, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.” See also Romans 12:3-8
