Myth buster #5: I need to clean myself up before I start attending church
If you believe this, you will never attend church, because you cannot clean-up yourself. It works the other way around. Go to church. Hear the Word of God. Be convicted of your sins. Recognize that you need a Savior. Receive Jesus as your Savior. Allow God to do a continual clean-up job until you leave this world. See, going to church is at the beginning of the process, not at the end. Start this Sunday!!!
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
~ Romans 10:17
