Why Go to Church When You Can Stay Home and Watch Online?

Go to church because your church needs you.

I’m not talking about the building or the organization. Rather, the people of God need what you can offer.

Your physical presence, words of encouragement, and acts of service—combined with what others bring, is what makes the people of God. When you “go to church” with missional eyes opened wide, you arrive early and stay late, you engage in conversations with other followers of Jesus, you look for people who need to be encouraged, and you lean into “coincidental” conversations with people that God will bring along your path.

Go to church because it’s not just about spiritual food.

If going to “church” once a week was just about gaining what you need spiritually to make it through another week, then tuning in online would be just fine. You could get what you need on Christian radio, reading books, studying the Bible, or watching your favorite TV preacher.
