Which Church Should We Go To?

Aug 1, 2008
Today,many old churches has seen their memberships declining. Where once it was a place for the faithful believers, many has now turned into a place for the tourist dollars.Then there the large ones with big congregations, big names, big buildings, big budgets, big fundraisings and big services that looks more like a big rock concert.

We are made to believe that we are seeing something big and wonderful happening in the church until some scandals and internal feuds began to rock their foundations. As Christians, we must remember that Satan is hard at work trying to destroy every church foundation. We have to continuously support the church where God has directed us to go or serve, whether big or small, old or new, rich or poor.

What Is A Church?
The most popular description of the church is that of the body of Christ, of which our Lord is the Head. That Jesus Christ is the Head of the body suggests that it is our Lord who directs and guides the body, and that its unity comes from the Head of the body, who coordinates and directs each individual part.

And he (Jesus) is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.Colossians 1:18 NIV

Which Church Should We Go To?
Attending the right church could mean our salvation or our destruction. However, there is no perfect church as there is no perfect pastor and church members. Nothing on earth is perfect. Only God is. Like any other place, we can find some wonderful people and some who are not. Jesus taught us that it was common for weeds to be found growing together with the crops. So how can we decide which church we should go to?

1. Seek God's Direction.
Pray and seek God's direction. As in Proverbs 3:6, In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

2. Place of God
- Does it teach from the Bible?
- Does it teach the right doctrine?
- Does it proclaim Jesus as God and Savior?

3. Place With Good Characteristics
- Does it help to build up your spiritual life?
- Does it devote itself to biblical principles?
- Does it have good fellowship amongst its members?

4. Place Where We Can Commit and Contribute.
We should be able to commit, contribute and hold ourselves accountable to the church where God has directed us to go. A church can never rise above what it's individual members are.
