The bible says that Jesus is the head of the Church and husbands should love their wives as Christ loves the church; and there is more scripture that directs people to the church; so why is it that many believers think they don't have to go to church. They say yes to Jesus, but no to the church. Now, this happens for many reasons. But if you love God, you will love Jesus. And if you love Jesus, you will love what He loves, and Jesus loves the church. Well, can't a man be a Christian without being a member of the church? Let me answer that question with another one--can a bee be a bee without a hive? Can a sailor be a sailor without a ship? Can a person be a parent without a family? Lets all face the facts; We need one another. We were made for one another. Jesus didn't say, "I will build you a church" or "You will build My church." Instead, Jesus said, "I will build My church." Now you answer whether or not you should go to church.
