Why Church



This week we are starting a new sermon series called Why Church, and I want to take this space to explain a little bit about what we will be studying. It all comes from the idea that the “why” behind your actions is much more important than “what” your actions were. I learned this the hard way. I got in trouble far more often for why or how I said something than for what I said. 

Many people will ask “what church” you go to, but has anyone ever asked “why” do you go to church? If they did, what would you say? Do you know why you go to church? I mean, other than the standard answers of “It helps me” or “It makes me feel good” or “Everyone needs a church family” or “Because God wants us to.” Can you really tell someone why you go to church?

As we go through this series of sermons, we will ask some questions that you may not have ever thought you would hear in church? Questions like: “Does God really want me to go to church?” “Does the bible actually say that we are supposed to go to church?” “Does our church look like what a church is supposed to look like?” “What is the purpose of a church?” The answers to some of these questions may surprise you. 

So, why “Why Church.”  Well because, if you don't know why you are doing something, then you are in danger of doing it for the wrong reasons. If you don't know why you are doing something, then you won't know how to tell if it is working. If you don't know why you are doing something, then you may not actually be doing what you think you are doing. I believe that this is exactly what is wrong with the church in America today.
