The Doctor's Office Is Empty!

Why do we attend church? What a question to ask. Yet, so many people get frustrated and leave churches for the wrong reasons. This can only happen because people have lost sight of the Biblical reasons for attending a Bible-believing church. If we are saved, we should want to go to church (Psalms 122:1)! God refers to the local church as the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth, I Timothy 3:15. It truly shocks me how many people don’t go......

Are There Biblical Principals Which Govern Church Worship Music?

Music in church has become a controversial issue among many Christians. One of the reasons is because what one “enjoys” or what makes one “feel good” has become the measure of right and wrong, rather than what is stated in God’s Word, the Bible. In all areas of the Christian life, including church music, all Christians must decide that the Bible is the authority. This article will present some Bible principles which govern Christian music. There is no question that God intended for us to utilize music to worship Him. In 2Chronicles......

Is The Bible Just Another Book?

I often talk with people who say that they don’t believe the Bible. I tell them that is their choice, and I ask them if they have read the Bible. They usually say that they have not. Doesn’t it seem a bit unwise to reject the Bible without investigating it for one’s self? It seems especially unwise when the Bible is still the best-selling book in the world, and the book translated into the most languages. Millions of people for centuries have claimed that the Bible has changed their lives, yet there......

The Discontented Soldier

In another article, I compared the church to a hospital – a place where people go to get help with their spiritual ailments. This month I’d like to compare the church to a “boot camp” – a place where soldiers go to prepare for battle. The Bible refers to Christians as “soldiers” in II Timothy 2:3-4. We are told to “fight the good fight of faith” in I Timothy 6:12. We have been left here to fight for our Captain in a very important war against the principalities and powers of this......

The Preeminence of Family in the Bible

Before there were governments, before there were churches, there was family! The very foundation of society is where it all began – the family. In the second chapter of the Bible, God talked about marriage: “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24). Jesus Christ expounded upon this great truth in Matthew 19:5-6 and Mark 10:7-8 by saying, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” God started it all with family. He......

Are You Being Fed A Balanced Diet?

One of the main reasons we are to attend church is to be “fed” the Word of God. Pastors are commanded to “feed the flock of God”, I Peter 5:2. Since this is true, it is important that Christians are receiving a “balanced diet”. When the Apostle Paul was saying farewell to the elders at Ephesus in Acts 20, after spending three years with them he declared that he had given them “all the counsel of God” in Acts 20:27. He instructed them to “feed the church of God.” Jesus commanded His......

The Importance of the Bible in Church

It almost seems silly to write an article like this, but in today’s “entertainment” church climate, a reminder never hurts. God designed the local church as a place for His people to grow in their faith. Assembling regularly was God’s idea, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together”, Hebrews 10:25. God knew that gathering together was an important part of the Christian life. According to the Scriptures, we assemble for many reasons: To corporately give to and worship the Lord; Acts 2:47; I Corinthians 16:2; Hebrews 2:12; To corporately pray; Acts 12:12;......

Why Have More Than One Church Service Per Week?

A church is to assemble for many reasons – worship, fellowship and care, ministry, etc. One of the main reasons we are to attend church is to be “fed” the Word of God. Pastors are commanded to “feed the flock of God”, I Peter 5:2. The Bible says that pastors are given to the church for the “perfecting of the saints” in Ephesians 4:11-12. Pastors are instructed to “labour in Word and doctrine” in I Timothy 5:17, and are told to “preach the Word” in II Timothy 4:2. When the Apostle Paul......
