When you decided to follow Jesus, you became a part of God’s great, big family. The local church is the gathering of God’s family and has been called the hope of the world! The church is not man’s idea, but God’s idea. As God’s family, we are supposed to gather together on a consistent basis. We do this to encourage, grow and motivate each other to love God and love others for Jesus. Gathering with other believers in a church setting is one of the best ways to stay connected to Jesus.
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. – Hebrews 10:24-25
There is so much meaning when we gather together. This sets the stage for God to do amazing things in our lives. The church began as a gathering of believers in one room, worshiping and praying. What was true then is still true today: God’s presence and power are experienced when we gather as the local church.
