Does Church AttendancGet You To Heaven?The importance of the church, and does it get you to heaven?

Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

Church attendance is a crucial aspect of being a Christian. It allows us to come together with other believers and worship God as one community. We can hear the word of God shared by our pastors, offer support and encouragement to each other in times of need, and build lasting relationships that become like family.

Attending church regularly doesn’t guarantee us entry into heaven, but it does help us grow in our faith and deepen our relationship with Christ. In today’s world where many people feel isolated or alone, attending church provides an opportunity for meaningful connections and a sense of love and belonging. So let’s make it a priority to attend church whenever we can because when we do so, we are strengthening not only ourselves but also the larger body of Christians who share this journey with us! ~ Bill Greguska

Hebrews 10:24-25  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.




How Important Is Church Attendance?

  3. Intimate, Deep Fellowship




Church Attendance Is A Crucial Aspect Of Our Spiritual Lives!

Church is about being part of something much bigger than ourselves. When we attend church, we are joining together with other believers to worship God, learn from His word, and minister to others in need. The sense of community that comes from attending church regularly is invaluable – it provides us with a support system that can help us through life’s challenges and celebrate life’s joys. Church attendance does not guarantee entry into heaven, but it helps strengthen our faith as we hear the preaching of live sermons and connect with fellow believers who share similar beliefs. As Christians, it’s essential to remember that what Jesus did on the cross has set us free – not just our physical presence at church services. So let us continue to come together as the body of Christ – knowing that we are made stronger by each other’s love and support along this journey called life!



Church Attendance Is Very Important!

Can Church Attendance Get anyone Into Heaven?

Get right with God before it is too late!

Why can’t I Stay Home And Pray? Always I was not particularly eager to go to church like many of us when I was growing up.  I knew that it was good for me to hear God’s word. To answer the question, I would have to say no, because the thief on the cross did not attend church, but Jesus said he would be with Him in paradise. God calls us to gather in fellowship with one another, encourage, strengthen, walk in faith together, and build each other up.

Yes, as a youngster, my attention wandered. When I was a kid, I used to ask myself why I even attended church; it was not until I got a little older that I understood why! I learned that attending church was meant to honor God on Sundays, which should work and reflect the rest of the week, don’t you?  But thank God now, as an adult, I enjoy attending church, hearing God’s Word, and fellowshipping with other believers regularly. ~ Bill Greguska





Why Is Church Attendance Necessary?

Chruch attendance does not necessarily equal salvation.

Do not be fooled, thinking that just because you attend church does not mean you are a Christian!

Church attendance is necessary for fellowship with other believers, supporting one another, and loving one another while also reaching out to others who might not know the Lord yet.

Learning about God is another excellent reason for church attendance. Whatever you do, do not take church for granted. We are blessed to attend church and honor and worship God, who from all good things come. ~ Bill Greguska








Do I Really Need To Go To Church? Pastor John MacArthur



Think About This For A Minute:

Church attendance is essential. But remember that going to church does not make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you a car. Church attendance does not guarantee that you are saved and will go to heaven. It is good to be exposed to God’s word in church, but do not let that fool you into believing that is all you need.

A relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is critical. Make sure that you are Born Again and that you are Right with God! Do not be deceived. There are lots of people who attend church who are not Born Again or Right with God.

Importance of Church

(This section is from The Book I wrote)

Lord, being connected with your church and having fellowship with other believers helps us grow as Christians and learn more about you. When I hear your Word spoken by the pastor, it feeds me spiritually, keeps me growing mentally, and helps me stay on the right path in my life.

I’m so glad you have given me a positive attitude about being a part of a local church. I haven’t always felt this way. In the past I thought church was boring, but that is a thought from the deceiver – the devil himself.

Lord, I pray that you help those who don’t like the thought of going to church. Help them want to choose to come to church, rather than waiting for a hearse and six men to bring them.

Hebrews 10:25 ~ Not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Anyone who is to find Christ must first find the church. How could anyone know where Christ is and what faith is in him unless he knew where his believers are? ~ Martin Luther, German professor of theology, composer, priest, and monk.
