Scripture Reading: Acts 2:41-47



Scripture Text: Acts 2:41-47

41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.



Do I Really Need the Church?

Why should I come back to Church?

Introduction: Why do we do certain things in life?

You go to school to get an education so you can make a living.
You go to work to make money so you can pay the bills.
You go to the gym for exercise and better health.
You go to the mall to shop for clothes and the grocery store to buy food.
You go to the lake to fish, the ball game to cheer, and golf course for fun.
But church? Why go to there? Why get up early on one of your few off-days? Why go through the hassle of dressing up and the getting the kids ready? Why go to the trouble of finding a parking space near the front or a seat in the back?

Why go to church?

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering about that little question, you’re not alone. Surveys tell us that as many as 75% of Americans identify themselves as Christians, yet only 20% of Americans attend church regularly. I guess some people look at going to church as a bother—an unnecessary burden to be avoided whenever possible—a perfectly good hour wasted in order to keep a wife or a preacher or a parent off their backs. Others see it as sort of like punching a spiritual clock or earning brownie points with their Maker.

But to someone who understands church and what it’s really all about, going to church can be the most spiritually fulfilling, inspiring thing you do all week.

Theme: “The church provides people with things they cannot find anywhere else in the world.”

Point I. The Church Provides: WORSHIP - Helps You Focus On God
Point II. The Church Provides: FELLOWSHIP - Helps You Face Life’s Problems
Point III. The Church provides: DISCIPLESHIP - Helps Fortify Your Faith
Point IV. The Church Provides: MINISTRY - Helps You Find Your Talents
