Why We Need Church, a Place to Worship
Over time, people have expanded the knowledge base in many fields. Innovation in science, health and medicine has reached new heights. We have larger jets, and cruise liners, faster computers, and prescriptions for specific diseases.
Amid all the development, if you ask any individual focused on this type of progression, “Is the church still important,” you would receive a broad array of answers. Some might laugh because the church isn’t a priority to them and see no connection to change and innovation at all. Others may say that it is somewhat like a museum—something for special occasions or to address septic topics. Others may say it is politically divisive. Or, some may react to our query by stating they view the church as a place to socialize.
Let us discuss why church is critical to part of and why we still need church.
It is a place to meet God.
While God is everywhere, there’s something unique about being within a church building. It gives us a physical area to connect and draw closer to God and understand that something is bigger than ourselves. Plus, commitment to a specific church as your place of worship shows we are open to God and trying to understand His purpose for our lives. The simple act of participation brings us nearer to him. Finally, dedicated time and space with God strengthens and reinforces spiritual, and therefore, personal growth.
The Church connects us socially.
A more peripheral benefit of meeting for worship at the church is how it connects us socially. This is particularly true if you’ve recently moved to a different town, or even only a new neighborhood. Generally, church people are friendly, and offer organized small groups centered on common interests, special events to appeal to individuals and families from all walks of life. If you’re trying hard to meet people or make friends, this is the place to do it!
The Church brings peace.
When worship begins at church, you can find peace. I am always amazed at the easier this is in the church environment. The Faith Center of Atlanta is a church that promotes finding peace through praise and worship, and it is the place that challenges us to be faith-focused individuals.
The Church gives back to society.
Most churches provide some charitable work and aid to their local communities and international other areas of need worldwide. Through our faith, we have managed to see and assist communities across the globe and locally in various ways.
The Church teaches forgiveness.
It can be tough to let go of disappointments, frustrations and annoyances. Perhaps a friend has let us down, our children have disappointed us; or our partner has done or said something hurtful. Forgiveness is one of those hardest lessons that you can learn in a church family. Yet, if you are able to let things go, you may get rid of the biggest burdens of your life.
The Faith Center of Atlanta is more than a church building—it’s the church described in the book of Acts. It’s a safe place for individuals to grow in love, peace, and faith for those who need it, whether they connect with us inside and outside the walls of the physical church building.
