Definitions:

The word “church” is used in two ways throughout scripture. One is the Church universal, the Body of Christ. This use of the term describes the church comprising every person who is a believer in Jesus Christ. The second usage, and by far the more prominent one, is a reference to a local body of believers: the church at Ephesus, the church at Rome, etc. The local church is a vital part of God’s Plan. Joining a local church is not mandated in scripture, but there is evidence that there was some method of belonging.

Scripture:

Romans 12:5
“So, we who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”

Acts 2:47
“And the Lord added to them day by day, those that were being saved.”

Details:

Joining a church gives these distinct advantages:

  • It provides for accountability in your spiritual development.
  • It provides accountability to spiritual leadership.
  • It provides a sense of authenticity when sharing your faith with others.
  • It provides a place to exercise your spiritual gifts to strengthen the Body of Christ.
  • It provides a place to connect with others to find resources that are helpful to the Christian walk.
