What does the bible say about church attendance?
The Bible tells us to meet together as believers and to encourage one another.
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (NIV)
The Bible instructs us to be in relationship with other believers. If we are part of Christ’s body, we will recognize our need to fit into the body of believers. The Churchis the place where we come together to encourage one another as members of Christ’s body. Together we fulfill an important purpose on the Earth.
As members of the body of Christ, we belong to each other.
… so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. (NIV)
It is actually for our own good that God want us in fellowship with other believers. We need each other to grow up in the faith, to learn to serve, to love one another, and to practice forgiveness. Though we are individuals, we still belong to one another.
At St Leodegars church we believe that having a relationship with God is the most important thing you can do with your life. Expressing our love and devotion to him is what worship is all about. Worship strengthens us and helps us. Those who are full of joy find release, those who are feeling low find hope.
