"Throughout the Bible we read that believers met in the temple, synagogues, and churches to worship God (Acts 2:42, 46 and Acts 10:25). Jesus regularly went to the synagogue to read and teach the scriptures to the people and Paul often went to a Jewish synagogue to teach the scriptures, reason with the Jews, and present the gospel to those in attendance.
"God still wants us to worship Him, not only individually, but also as a group. The church building provides a place. It is a place where we can gather to worship God together as a group; it is a place where we can grow and gain a better understanding of the scriptures; it is a place where we can use our tithes and offerings to spread the gospel to the lost in our local community and throughout the entire world and a place where we can have fellowship, pray, and encourage one another in our faith. It provides a place for each of us to connect “to Christ, His Church, His Word, and His Mission, for His Glory.”
"In order to have such a place with adequate space to teach the scriptures and fulfill God’s mission, each of us needs to donate financially beyond our tithe. We need to pray for God’s guidance and trust that He will provide for all our needs as we give financially toward the building of additional space to our current building."
