This week we’re going to be talking about whether Christians need other Christians in order to follow the Lord, or if we can be faithful to God without other believers. This is an important topic, especially in light of the year we have had with the pandemic and the lockdowns, closures, and isolation for many that followed.

Churchgoers Hold Conflicting Views on the Need for Other Christians

“Protestant churchgoers say they can walk with God just fine by themselves, but they also say they need other believers to help them do it.

“A Lifeway Research survey sponsored by the Center for Church Revitalization at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary finds majorities of those who attend U.S. Protestant or non-denominational churches at least monthly agree with the two sentiments that are seemingly in conflict.

“Three in 4 Protestant churchgoers (75%) say they need other believers to help them to grow in their walk with God, with 38% strongly agreeing.”

“Despite that, 65% of Protestant churchgoers say they can walk with God without other believers, with 36% agreeing strongly.”

“According to Kenneth Priest, interim director of the Center for Church Revitalization at Southwestern, those two statements are contradictory, and churches need to help those in the pew recognize the conflict.” (Lifeway Research)
