The Church: Why You Need It

Church. Its whole purpose is to bring glory to the Creator, to worship him, and to proclaim his message of hope and healing in this world. It's a community of people who do life together, who take care of one another, and who are family.

But so often it’s not like that. It becomes a stagnant ritual, a stifling hierarchy, a place where anger simmers and conflicts go unresolved. It's something we may do out of duty, not because it feels satisfying or because we feel connected.

This series shares stories of the beauty and the brokenness of the Church. We uncover some of the pains, joys, and failures that exist when we’re part of the Body of Christ. And we unpack why the Church is so integral to our faith, and why God values it so much.
