Why You Shouldn’t Worry About Not Going to Church

There are many so-called church affiliated groups in the news whose main function and focus seems to be telling other people why they believe God finds them unacceptable and unworthy of love – the second message being that if they would just get with the program they too could be a squeaky clean near perfect Christian complete with church certified seal of approval.  God would then find them acceptable.  Worship this way, align your political views that way, either do or don’t do this or that and you too will be given the golden ticket to heaven.  The truth is, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Then, there’s Set Apart Church.  The name says it all.  Here the invitation comes with no strings.  You don’t have to change a thing to show up.  Come in your pajamas, your shorts, your favorite t-shirt.  It won’t matter.  Come ready to hear exactly what Jesus said about God’s love for His children with no political slant, no judgment, and no request for money.  Just come.  Here you’ll find a welcome invitation from your Heavenly Father.  You’ll learn through a series of online sermons and devotions exactly how He feels about you.  The answer may surprise you.  If you just need someone to pray for you, you will find a place for that as well.  All of it in church online.

At Set Apart Church it’s God meeting you wherever you are.  It’s a church without walls where the door is always open.  There you’ll find a passion for Christ that comes from true relationship with Him and a deep desire to share the forgiveness of God, His love and His heart for you.  Whatever your reason for not going to church, here is the answer.  What do you have to lose?  You never know what you might gain.

  1. There are assemblies of individuals who seek truth, and who follow truth right out of mainstream mega churches. I am interested in your group. Thanks for sharing. Yahweh bless.

  2. Wonderful post! I left the organized church for many years because I was so damaged as a kid by the message of “Hell is for everyone but us” I was bombarded with. It took me a long, long time to realize I need to keep my eyes on Christ, not on Christians. His message is what matters.

    I get a “page not found” message on the first link.

    • Thank you for your comments! I am always excited when I come across someone whose message is just that – it is about Christ and what He has done for us. I meet all kinds of people who shy away from organized religion because of the people they encountered there. The church is meant to be a place of humility, honesty, and grace. It just shows how badly we are all in need of Jesus and His grace if He can’t seem to be found in its people. It all begins in relationship with Christ. I love that He can meet us anywhere!
