Why We Go To Church

Why we go to church is really simple.

God gave Moses the 10 commandments and one of them said to Keep the Sabbath Day Holy.

Exodus 20:8  Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

Jesus went to Church.  According to scripture it was His custom to go to church on the Sabbath. 

Luke 4:16  He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom....

The Bible tells us that we are to imitate what we see God do. 

Ephesians 5:1  Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children

John 5:19  Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.

John 10:30 I and the Father are one.”

There you have it, that is my simple explanation of why I believe that Christians should go to church.  God said keep the Sabbath Holy.  Jesus kept it Holy by going to church.  We, as believers are supposed to do what we see God and Jesus do.

Jesus went to church and so should we.
