Attending Church, Why?
Welcome to episode #4 of our Basic Training series. Now that you’ve had a chance to read up on our glossary of terms, learned how to pray to your Heavenly Father and how to read God’s revelation to man, why don’t we start talking about what the big deal is about going to church?
You can listen to this episode in the archives of the PODCAST page.
Here is the Scripture reference we encourage you to read near the end of the podcast.
What am I to do in church?
1 Thes 5:12-24
12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; 13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves. 14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feeble minded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19 Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
