Christianity Is So Much More Than Going To Church

The beauty of Christianity is that there are many facets that make up its entirety. When someone finds themselves in a relationship with Christ, there is more to its being than simply attending a church building or spending more time in prayer. Christianity is more than sitting in seats and listening to sermons. There is more…

First let me try to redefine the way you view church, as it is not simply just a building that one attends on a weekly basis, but instead who one is on a daily basis. We are the church, and we are called to reflect the image of Jesus in our everyday lives.

When we take this reality to heart, every aspect of our lives then becomes a mission field, a space to worship in, and a realm to shine your light in. The world is God’s canvas and the Holy Spirit wants to use you to create a masterpiece known as The Great Commission.

Christianity is so much more than you could ever imagine it would be, and that’s part of the beauty. Alongside an already fulfilling relationship with Jesus, one will find true meaning and purpose through the will of God. Every aspect of your life will now have direction, and your everyday journey of life will now be accompanied by the Spirit of God himself. When we limit Christianity to nothing more than attending church, we are truly forfeiting the almighty power of God.

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”―C.S. Lewis

Attending church is incredible, but it’s just one of the many beautiful layers that Christianity has for you discover. Alongside the communal body referred to as The Church comes true life, discipleship, repentance, relentless grace, hope, unrestricted love, serving the least of these and so much more. Christianity is so much more than going to church.

Lean into the Spirit of God, and allow that power to guide you every step of every day. The Christian life is a breathtaking journey filled with adventure and excitement. Layer upon layer, you will you encounter the beauty and majesty of being a follower of Jesus.

  1. All over world there is a kind of awakening on this topic. I believe it is a test of maturity of a believer. Not always easy to understand the limit between being rebellious versus istitutional church and being honest toward God – I believe right approach is honesty and respect toward both. This journey is anyway worth to be lived. Love from Italy – Alessio

  2. You said it!!!

    I remember back in the mid 2000s I was regularly attending “church” and felt good about myself for going, but I was definitely still going to Hell (which makes me wonder… how many people who claim to be Christian and get together to worship God on Sundays are still going to Hell…).

    Christianity is also a lifestyle.

    1. I agree. I believe that Christians are called to spread the light in every institutions,organizations, nations, races, etc. The Great Commission is not limited in church talk but also includes stewardship, workmanship, justice, peace, and poverty alleviation. Church will become more effective and relevant if she become more sensitive and responsive to the need of its community. Exemplifying Christ to every people and situations.
