Why go to Church? Can I be a Christian without going to Church?

So What is a Church?

Is is the building that defines what is Church or is it the people that makes up the church?

Church is the body of Christ and Jesus Christ is the head of the church. Christ died for the Church, we are the church, which means Jesus Christ died for us so that we can live a life like Jesus did. Jesus lived and modeled a life that we as followers of Jesus should live. He lived a sinless life. He never sinned. and lived a life that was pleasing to God.

So we are the church and we carry Jesus in us wherever we go. Church is when a group of people gather together with the sole purpose of worshiping Jesus and learn more about God.

Why Go to Church? Can you be a Christian without going to Church?

Some people might say well I pray to God at my house and I don't have to go to church. Well they are not right. They think they are right and they're deceiving themselves. This way you can be a christian but you can't be a follower of Jesus, because just you are a christian does not mean that you follower of Jesus. Because the name Christian was given by humans to those who followed Jesus.

So if you are a Christian, you should find a local church and be a part of the church.

Church is the body of Christ and if you are a follower of Jesus, then you have to be a part of a family that is the church, and it is God's plan that become a part of the family. God loves family because he created it.
