Why is Going to Church so Important?
By Pastor Jon Haakana

When I was growing up in the 60’s and 70’s going to church was a way of life. Over 70% of church members regularly attended church. Now that number has dropped to under 40%. What’s the difference? There’s more to do? We’re busier today?

Many of those reasons just become excuses for us. The fact remains that we believe and teach the importance of regularly attending church. But, why is it important?

The Bible tells us we need to attend church so we can worship God with other believers and be taught His Word for our spiritual growth. The early church “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts 2:42) We should follow that example of devotion—and the same things. Back then, they had no designated church building, but “every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” (Acts 2:46) Wherever the meeting takes place, believers thrive on fellowship with other believers and the teaching of God’s Word.
