Why Church Matters | Sunday Message

In this message, Pastor Adam helps us remember "why church matters." We'll take a look at Hebrews for important points. Notes: Hebrews 10:19—25 Hebrews 4:12 Hebrews 4:15—16 Hebrews 6:19 We must go to God. We must hold on to hope. We must motivate each other. Only 24% of our congregation attended Harvest at least once per month on average. 76% attended less than once per month. Only 11% went to at least half the Sundays in 2023. 1. We must go to God. The Church exists for 3 reasons: The exaltation of God (Upward) The edification of the saints (Inward) The evangelization of the world (Outward) 2. We must hold on to hope. Ephesians 2:8–9 (ESV) “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast” 3. We must motivate each other.
