Why I love the church. I grew up in church. I’ve had great experiences there. I love the Word of God, I love the fellowship of Christian brothers and sisters, I love the praise and worship, and I love what the church does for people. That is the reason I became a pastor and started Heritage Christian Center. I want as many people as possible to experience the same joy I’ve received from the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The other person who loves the church is–God. In fact, He says that even the gates of hell will not prevail against the church. Another reason to get and stay hooked up with a great local church is the promise that God would cause all things to work together for your good if you are called according to His’ purpose. I challenge you to check it out—everything God is doing is through the church, in fact, He called it His’ church. You may feel the church isn’t perfect, but I believe God meant for all of His’ imperfect children to be apart of this perfect work He is doing inside all of us.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28
