Attending Church Does Not Make You a Believer

This week I’ll be talking about the depth of our faith in Jesus. Many people attend church but have a level of faith that is only skin deep. They intellectually acknowledge Jesus, but have never received Him as the only way to eternal life. A recent survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found 57% of people attending evangelical churches believe that many religions can lead to eternal life.

I was personally shocked at that until I again read the survey results. It reported on the people who attend evangelical churches, not on people who embrace evangelical beliefs. Attending an evangelical church does not make you a believer in Jesus Christ as the way, the truth and the life. You can be transformed from an attender to a believer by receiving Jesus as Lord today.
