Once we understand the importance of worship in Spirit and in truth, a top priority in choosing a church to attend should be biblical worship. When many people decide to choose a church today they often choose a church for the wrong reason. (For example, my friends and business contacts go there; it’s the closest to my house; they have a good youth program; the worship service is fun and exciting; the pastor tells great jokes.) Biblical worship and scriptural preaching take priority over social, entertainment and business concerns. The local church is not a social club. It is a place where God’s people worship and fellowship with Christ in a special manner. Public worship is the closest thing to heaven itself.
