The role of church
The role of the modern church in the life of the 21st-century believer is critical because it fills a void only the church can. If a car needs fixing, it is brought to the mechanic shop. If someone is sick, the health center or hospital is the best place to seek medical attention. The church is where people should go if they need a “spiritual fix.” The church is a hospital for sinners and not an exclusive club for saints.
So why would someone want to attend church? Regardless of what is said about churches, people expect that their life problems can be addressed in some fashion or form. With all the weight and pressures of their world weighing down on their minds, people expect the church to provide Bible-based answers that no other institution can provide.
How can the community benefit from churches in California City?
Churches are a public service to the surrounding communities. In the summer of 2005, one church covered a 15-block radius around the church by going door-to-door introducing themselves as the “community church.” It was amazing and at the same time shocking to see how many people knew about their church and how many didn’t know of their church existence — even though they had been in the neighborhood for the past 35 years! They had an older woman who visited their church recently and said that for 25 years she has lived in the community and walked past their church and never once took notice of them.
One would believe that they had a small building, but their church is a huge 4-story brick building that takes up 2 lots and is by far the tallest building on their block. Maybe this lady just needs a new pair of glasses. However, the key to this issue remains…churches must be transparent within their communities.
Upon learning the proximity of churches in California City and the services offered, people are always delighted to use their assistance, whether it is in the form of a food pantry, community seminars on health, finance, or emergency preparation. Making a difference in people’s everyday lives will benefit the believer as well as the community. When the church is rooted deeply in its community, and its membership is operating as public servants, the church will impact the lives of the people and the believers will fulfill the Messiah’s mission on earth.
Reading from the book of Isaiah in the Torah, He read our mission statement, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised” (Luke 4:18).
The basic function of the church is to be involved in every facet of the life of the believer. Holding true to this mission, Christ looked at the needs of the people, provided them, and then began to preach out the good deeds. The church today must live up to its true billing — meeting the needs of the people. Both the alcoholic and the poor should be able to receive assistance.
