How many fish make it a point to go to church regularly? What denomination are you and what benefits do you see from faithful participation/attendance?

My wife, kids, and I faithfully attend church every week. We go to a non denominational Christian church. We also all serve in our church every week in different ministries. The benefits are plentiful: 1. We get to serve the the God who created us and as given us everything. 2. Expository preaching. 3. We have the most incredible friends that we met through church. We actually vacation we servers with them every year. 4. God tells us through his word that church attendance and service is expected. Not a suggestion. The benefit is we are being obedient. 5. Overall, I don’t believe you can have a closeness to God without participating/attending regularly. It is a huge point in worship. Too many people try to “fit” church in to their lives after kids sports, other hobbies, work, etc. we definitely used to do that. Now church is a top priority that we build other things around. My kids play high level sports. We tell every coach that God is our top priority before joining so they can make a decision about offering a spot to my kids. Hasn’t been an issue thus far. There are so many other benefits but these are what came to mind as I am waking up

Weekly, Catholic. I derive great benefit from having God and faith in my life. Guides me. Provides peace. To each his own, though

It's entertaining to read everyone else's comments. Quite a few religious fish! I do not go to church.

Today in church we went over Revelation 20:1-10 Revelation is a hard book because it is so thick with prophecy and written in story almost of what the future will hold when Jesus returns. My pastor went to Dallas Theological Seminary and my goodness is such a great teacher of the word. Not one umm his entire sermon. I just pray that every fish on this thread who doesn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to have the urgency to know God! Just think, a 100 Million dollar prospect calls you and and leaves you a voicemail that he is ready to do business, he leaves his number for you to call him back as soon as you can so that you can do business. The urgency you would have to call him back to do business would be great. The urgency to find Christ and be born again is 100,000 more urgent. Oh my friends I am praying that you will seek the truth, for the truth will set you free!

I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, I go to Bible meetings twice a week, I am Spiritually Satisfied, have many True Friends, enjoy a sense of inner peace and have a strong hope for a better future which puts Life in its proper perspective. Thank you for asking as I don’t get to share that often enough.

I attend church weekly (non-denominational Christian) and also volunteer with our student ministry on a weekly basis. It's arguably the most rewarding thing I do in life. While I do have some clients from church, I do not view it or treat it as a prospecting tool. Some of the primary benefits are genuine satisfaction, opportunity for reflection, incredible friendships, and opportunities to serve and live out my convictions.

No. Wish I was more involved. Feel like I’ve lost my way. Grew up catholic and raised by parents that sent us to church but never accompanied us. Hypocrisy at its finest. Can’t say I was ever interested. Do I consider myself a good person? Yes, I treat others with love and compassion and don’t feel church would improve on that.

Faith-believing in the finished work of the cross. That Jesus was the substitutionary atonement for your sins and mine, he lived a perfect life, died and rose again. Repentance- turning from your sins. Not only confessing them to God but rather turning away from them. 180 degree turn. Of course, we are not perfect and won’t be this side of heaven. In order to turn from your sin, you have to turn towards something. God, his word, the church, his people. Too many people miss this very important part of the gospel. Faith+Repentance =Salvation+Good Works. Good works are very important but they come after salvation. Not before in order to be saved. I always believed but had never repented until about 8 years ago. I was a “good” person according to the world but didn’t live my life for Christ. There’s a big difference. I read a book called “Getting it Right” by Dr. Mike Fabarez. He is a Pastor in Ca. He also has a radio ministry called Focal Point Radio. I believe it provides free access to a ton of his sermons regarding many biblical topics. Very helpful

We do not attend as regularly as we should. We go to a non denominational Christian Church. We go through spurts where we attend every week for months at a time then don’t attend for months. I want to be more consistent. That being said, we pray before every meal and before bed. I attend a bimonthly men’s prayer group which I often host at my office. We volunteer and are involved but just don’t actually attend as frequently as we should. The biggest benefit to constant prayer is that we are very grateful and humbled by the life we live. We give thanks often. Zig Ziglar says an attitude of gratitude is essential and prayer is part of that for my family.

Yes. We tithe regularly.

#churchofthelongrun I was raised Catholic but left several years ago. I feel closest to my faith when I’m in nature. I do a lot of my reflecting and appreciating when I’m on my long runs every weekend. My kids go to a catholic school and I will fully support their decision to continue should they choose.

I mentioned I was raised Catholic and I chose to leave. Soooooo many reasons to leave. The current Pope shared a message that is much more open and loving than some past religious leaders. He once said something along the lines of an atheist with a good heart and good works will be welcomed into heaven before a pretend Christian will be.... It was an inspiring message but wasn’t well received by those hoping their weekly checks would pay their way into good graces. I have no concerns about what the next step holds for me.

Every Sunday, but I try to make a weekday Mass. For two thousand years Catholic’s worshiped on Sunday’s and devout Catholic’s would rather die than to miss Mass. Since I converted to the Catholic Church 10 years ago, I’ve only missed once and that was when the Church changers there mass schedule and I wasn’t informed. Church provides me purpose, spiritual goals, and community that can’t be duplicated. Without it my stress and impatience would not be ideal for this crazy job!

Just remember it’s not about going to church, church is so important and the Bible instructs is to go, but it is about your relationship with Jesus Christ, you Lord and Savior. The one who died on the cross, was buried, and rose three days later.
