It’s not a word, but the term “ChurchBore” gets the idea across – for most people, their image of the Church is reflected by the photograph above. As church attendance and involvement continues to shrink at a rapid pace, pundits are pondering the possibility of the extinction of this institution which has so powerfully influenced the world for so many years. Regardless of the speculation, the Christian church will survive. No one less than Jesus Christ affirmed that. But still, there is that question, “Why do so many people have such a negative opinion of the Church?” 

Without a doubt, much of the blame has to go to Christians themselves. We have, either from good or bad intentions, so distorted the original purpose for the Church that rather than being God’s representative in the world, in many cases, it has turned into a type of club. In other words, the problem is probably not the Church, but what human beings have done to it. 

Reading the New Testament leaves a very different impression of what God intends his Church to be, but more importantly how much it means to the One who founded it – Jesus! People can mock and laugh at the Church, but we had better take into consideration that is like making fun of a man’s cherished wife. It’s worth considering the implications for ridiculing the people for whom the Son of God sacrificed himself. 

If you’re confused by what you see in the Church and wonder what it is supposed to be, join us for one of our weekend services. You might find that the Church is something much more than boring. 

Weekend worship service time: Saturday: 6:00 pm & Sunday: 10:00 am
