Welcome back to our blog page here at Life Church! As a go-to option for family churches in Helena, we know that we have something special within the walls of our building. It has nothing to do with the building itself, it has nothing to do with the talents of the people singing on stage or the games that your child plays in kids church. What makes us unique is that we are a church full of people who truly love Jesus and love our community. We want to see Helena reached for Christ and we know that Life Church can play a huge part in that. By reaching out and being the hands and feet of Jesus in Helena, as well as welcoming newcomers into the fold of our congregation, we know that we’ll make a difference for the kingdom — one soul at a time. If you’d like to learn more about our Helena non-denominational church, check out our website to read a little about what we believe, learn about our leadership, or to contact us!
Obviously, coming from the perspective of church people like us here at Life Church, we’re all about going to church on a regular basis. But if you haven’t been raised in the church or it’s been a few years since you attended, it might not be second nature to go every Sunday. In fact, it might be really tough to give up your precious Sunday mornings. After all, you only get a limited number of weekend days and if you haven’t been in the habit of going to church and you haven’t yet made valuable friendships at your Helena church, it might be a sacrifice to go to church.
So why is it so important?
Going to church on a regular basis is not only valuable for yourself and your family, it can be so incredibly life-giving. Let’s discuss the importance of going to church from a biblical perspective. Continue reading to learn more about what the Word of God has to say about attending church.
1. The Bible Encourages Us to Not Give Up Meeting Together
When the New Testament was written, the church was a newly formed organization and church groups would meet secretly in people’s homes. Because in most regions, Christianity was against the law, Christians had to be extremely discreet about “going to church.” Yet, even with the dangerous times, the author of Hebrews encourages Christians to continue meeting together. If that was the advice when being a Christian could have gotten someone killed, how much more should we abide by that council today?
2. The Bible Talks About Iron Sharpening Iron
One of the more well-known similes from the Bible states that “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” This, of course, refers to the value of accountability in our lives. When a Christian doesn’t encounter other believers on a regular basis, there becomes a space for varying beliefs when it comes to important theology and doctrines. No one was meant to go through life and distinguish the Scriptures on their own. For that reason, your Helena church family is valuable.
To be honest, we could probably go on and on when it comes to the biblical value of going to church. Does going to church make you a Christian? Of course not. But going to church can help you strengthen your faith, encounter God on a regular basis, enjoy valuable community worship, and be a part of a life-giving group of people who care about you and your family! No one’s going to force you to come to our Helena Church — but we’d definitely love to see you there!
