Why should I attend church?
In addition to spending personal time reading and studying the Bible, it is important for us to attend church to be taught biblical principles by a preacher, pastor or teacher who is well trained. It is through understanding the Bible that we can develop strong faith and learn how to please God. Another reason why church attendance is important is it provides an opportunity to spend time with other Christians (brothers and sisters-in-Christ) and thereby gain strength and encouragement in our spiritual journey. Last but not least, one of the most critical reasons for attending church is to obtain spiritual guidance and training. God views the local church as a family, place of training and healing for His people. It is through this spiritual training that we become mature in the faith and thereby able to help others to do the same. God creates each person with unique gifts and talents that are to be used for the building or uplifting of the Body of Christ (the church). Romans 10:13-17; Hebrews 10:24–25; Ephesians 4:11–12.
What is salvation?
Salvation is being saved from sin, condemnation, or eternal separation from God. God loved mankind so much, He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to teach us about Him and to die for our sins. It does not matter what you have done or what kinds of sins you have committed, you can receive salvation today by simply asking God to forgive your sins, repenting (turn away from sinful ways and habits, cease from disobeying God) and inviting Jesus to become your Savior. You do not have to be at church to do this. You can do this in the privacy of your home or wherever you may be. Scripture References: Romans 3:10, 23; John 3:16; Romans 10:9–10.
Who is the Holy Spirit?
God is a triune being, which means there are 3 distinct persons in one God (Trinity). The Holy Spirit, often referred to as the Holy Ghost, is part of the Holy Trinity consisting of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit – three persons and expressions of one God. The Father is the creator and ruler of the universe. He is the all-knowing, all-wise source of life and is love. Jesus, who is called the Son of Man in the Bible, is the human expression of God. He was birthed into this world to reveal the Father, His plans and His ways to mankind. The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and leads the people of God into spiritual truth. He also convicts the world of sin. He leads us, reveals God’s plans for us, and gives us new life and helps us to live victoriously on this earth. Scriptural References: John 14:15; John 14:26; John 16: 8-11 and 12; Galatians 5:19–25; 1 Corinthians 2:9–11 and 13; 1Corinthians 12:4-11.
Why do people pay tithes and offerings at church?
The word “tithe” means the tenth part or the tenth of all the increase that God gives to us. Increase includes everything that increases the value of material possessions allows us to have, such as earned income or gifts. God requires each of us to pay our tithes for His storehouse (the church or ministry to which you belong or through which you receive the Word of God) and to support those who minister to the Body of Christ. The Bible says that the tithe belongs to God, and if we keep it, we are in essence robbing God. Offerings, on the other hand, are gifts we bring to God above or beyond the tithe. God allows each one of us to use our discretion or as the Holy Spirit guides us regarding the amount of offerings we give or how often we give them. With every commandment or directive God gives us, there is a blessing or many rewards. He promises to bless us so much when we obey Him with tithes and offerings that we will not have room to receive it all. On the contrary, when we fail to obey Him in this area, we give the enemy of our souls, Satan, license to rob us of prosperity and our basic financial needs may not be met. Scripture Reference: Malachi 3: 8–11.
Why do you speak in tongues?
When Christians speak in tongues, they are speaking in a language that is unknown to them, and they do not understand what they are saying. However, the Spirit of God (also known as Holy Spirit or the Holy Ghost) can provide an interpretation of what is being said. After a person repents and receives Jesus as his Savior, he may ask God to fill him with the Holy Spirit. When that happens, speaking in tongues is a sign of the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. Scripture Reference: Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Corinthians 14:4; Jude 20.
