Why go to Church?

We believe that it is absolutely essential that every Christ follower is connected to a local body of fellow believers.  Good christian fellowship is irreplaceable for the following eight reasons:

One
It is the primary place of teaching of sound doctrine so that believers will be completely and thoroughly equipped for every good work. (Titus 2:1-2, 2 Tim. 3:16)

Two
It helps to hold believers accountable to one another so that we are not led astray by sin or false doctrine.
 (James 5:15-16, 1 Tim. 1:3-7)

Three
It provides the place for true fellowship among believers .
(Heb. 10:24-25)
 
Four
It provides a place to express your faith in Christ .
(Col. 3:12-17)
 
Five
It is a true family of believers where deep and meaningful relationships are built .
(John 13:34-35, 1 John 3:16-23)
 
Six
It helps to guide you into sanctification, that is, becoming more like Christ than like the world.
(1 Thes. 4:3-5; 5:23-24, John 17:17)
 
Seven
It confronts sin in our lives.
 (2 Tim. 2:14-26, Rom. 16:17)
 
Eight
It provides corporate worship and centers our focus on God.
 (Ps. 5:7, Matt. 4:10, Rev. 4:8-11)
