The Benefits of Being a Part of a Local Church
Once the blessings of attending a local Church are revealed from the word of God and more so experienced this question usually reverts to "Why Wouldn’t I Want To Be A Part Of A Local Church"? Here are a few thoughts about what the Bible has to say regarding the blessing of being a part of a local Church.
1. The local church is a place where your needs can be met and where you can help meet the needs of others. Galatians 5:13
2. A local church body is a place where you can be comforted during your times of loss and grief. 1 Thessalonians 4:8

13. The word of God tells us we should go to Church and not forsake the gathering together of ourselves with others who are also God’s people. Going to Church is not only a matter of obedience it is also a matter of.the heart. Hebrews 10:25
I realize that many people in our society (perhaps even yourself) have been turned off by Church and as a result no longer feel the need to attend. Whatever the experience or reasoning behind your decision it does not diminish the truths presented to you here regarding the biblical benefits of attending Church.
