Going to church is not the perfect equation to get into heaven. A church is just a building. You can have “church” anywhere, not just in a building. Church doesn’t save you, faith in and through Christ does. It’s not about religion, it’s about a relationship with the One who created the universe. Church is not a cathedral for saints, it’s a hospital for sinners.
However, and therefore I believe we should not hinder coming together as believers and seekers in fellowship to learn, praise, worship, grow, heal, bring our resources and talents to and within the fellowship of believers whether it’s a building, backyard, park, or street corner; for the cause of Christ. Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
