Why do I go to church?

I go to church to worship God, learn more about Him and how I am supposed to be living, and to be around like-minded people. I like singing songs about Heaven and Jesus and what He's done for me. And I like to praise the Lord for all His blessings He has given us.There are many reasons......more
