  • 5 ... the bride of Christ ... it can't be 1, Christ is my life and salvation, not the church.

  • for me it's both 2 and 4. It is just a building because in my opinion you don't have to attend church to believe in God, you can do it from home. But I do feel welcome in that little community and there are a lot of people like me in there.

  • A church,no matter what religion, should be a group of people who are there to act as a family unit. Not a famiy in the sense of what family you already have, but a friendly family. It should include things other than religion, such as support, guidance, fellowship...which is always tied in with food for us LOL or some group activities, that don't necessarily have to do with religion/God, but more relationship building activities (becoming a more positive person for yourself and then for your family at home and your friends). To me a small aspect of church is learning about Jesus and the bible. It should also include activities to better your community or to let those shut ins around you there are people out there who care, by dropping off a baked good or homemade meal, just because we care...not because we want people to come to our place of worship.
