Here are a couple of relevant questions. Why go to church and why Wolcott Christian Church? First why go to church? We need to consider what Ephesians 1:22 says, “And God placed all things under His (Jesus) feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church.” If Jesus Christ is our Savior and our hope for eternity then church should be a natural outflow of our relationship with Him. After all, He is the head of the church and we definitely should want to be a part of what he is in charge of.
Some might respond by saying that the church is a bunch of messed up people and why do I need to be a part of that? The truth is that every church everywhere is messed up. You might be reading this and saying, WOW Pastor Tom I can’t believe you said that. Here’s what I mean. The church in its best form is full of sinners that are saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ. That means that our eternal destination is Heaven with God, but we still have a sin nature to deal with on a day to day basis. Don’t get me wrong, I believe that every person that is saved should be growing consistently to be more like Jesus (progressive sanctification). One of the best ways I have heard this stated is that the church is a hospital for sinners (like me) not a country club for saints (self righteous folks).
If you are seeking a church to attend why should you consider WCC?
- The folks at WCC will warmly welcome you and meet you where you are at. That means that we do our best to practice being a non-judgemental group. We realize that God has not put us in charge of judging because He is the only one that does that by the truth of His word and not us.
- We stand on, preach and teach the truth of God’s word as authoritative and infallible. We do our best to make sure that our teaching is practical and relevant based upon that truth.
- We desire for our worship to be authentic and God honoring. The goal of our worship services is that each person will connect vertically with God in worship through music, prayer, God’s word and the sharing of communion.
- Ultimately we want to help each person live the two greatest commandments: “to love God with all of our heart, soul and mind and love your neighbor (everyone) as yourself.” That is the goal of WCC.
Hope to see you at WCC soon.
