Am I Still Saved If I Don’t Go To Church?

Q. Am I still saved if I keep sinning the same sin?  I feel that not going to church is a sin because of the Commandments yet I still continue to decline going, will this affect my salvation?

A. There isn’t any commandment that requires you to attend Church.  Paul wrote that some people regard one day as more sacred than another and other people regard every day as the same. Each one should be fully convinced in His own  mind. (Romans 14:5)

Hebrews 10:25 warns us not to give up meeting together, but this doesn’t necessarily refer to church attendance.  Jesus said, “Wherever two or three are gathered in my name, I will be there in the midst of them.”  This could be a home fellowship group group, a Bible Study, or even a casual meeting of believers.

There is great benefit that comes from being in the company of other believers, and worshiping God together can bring much blessing.  But we are not commanded to go whether we like it or not, and there is no risk to our salvation if we don’t go.
