Why have a Church? What is a church? What PURPOSE does it serve? Should YOU attend a Church? Read the plain TRUTH from your Bible! It will surprise you! WHAT a paradox. What confusion! Almost no one seems to know WHAT is a church, WHY have a church, and what the church is supposed to accomplish, and yet church going is steadily increasing, and church building is at an all time high! Right now there is a new Protestant church finished somewhere in the United States every 18 minutes! Hundreds of "converts" make "decisions for Christ" in huge evangelistic campaigns. Thousands "join the church of their choice." each week. But something is wrong. Something is missing! Churchmen say something really serious is lacking in all this religious fervor of our modern age. They say the return to religion is only skin deep!
