Because of our Church Family!!!
"What is the value of having a church family?"
The value of becoming like family to other believers. Acts 2:42: “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
We study God’s Word together — 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”
We honor God together through worship — There is a unifying factor when believers worship God together, whether it’s through music or preaching or serving. Psalm 34:3: “Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together.”
We find accountability — Once relationships grow and friendships form, there is someone to encourage you, rebuke you when necessary, and rejoice with you. Proverbs 27:17: “Iron sharpens iron; so man sharpens his friend’s countenance.” Accountability is crucially important in the battle to overcome sin, and the church family is a great place to find someone to pray with, talk to, and confide in.
We find support in trial — When in need, you will want your brothers and sisters in Christ to uphold you in prayer and assist with practical needs like meals, cleaning, and childcare. Galatians 6:2: “carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
