FINDING A LOCAL CHURCH TO CALL HOME
Why find a local church to call home?
The local church is a place to serve and be served. The local church seeks to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the community. By getting involved in a local church like First Baptist Church of Duxbury, you desire to grow and experience life transformation.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” – Romans 12:2-3 (ESV)
PURPOSE OF THE LOCAL CHURCH
To Serve and be Served
According to the Bible, there are several essentials reasons for why the church exists:
- Teaching biblical doctrine
- Providing an opportunity for fellowship with believers in Jesus Christ
- Praying together
- Encouraging, and loving one another.
- Serving others together
- Sharing the Gospel (the good news)
(Acts 2:42; Ephesians 4:14 Ephesians 4:32; Romans 15:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; 1 John 3:11; Matthew 28:18-20)
