According to a Lifeway Research study, church attendance is dropping. In fact, 31 percent of Americans say they never attend religious services, while only 21 percent say they attend every week. Christianity teaches that church is a community where those who confess Jesus as their savior come together weekly to worship the living God. Decline in church attendance may be attributed to spiritual abuse or Christian hypocrisy, both sad realities. But likely the biggest factor contributing to a decline in church participation is our self-centered, secular age filled with entertainments that distract us from worshiping the ultimate reality of the universe—the God of the Bible. Every one of us is made to walk with God and to find our life and purpose in Him.
