Inviting another to church can lead to salvation, if they truly accept Jesus during their time there. However, going to church is NOT the same as being saved. The devil can go to church, it does NOT make him saved. Salvation is ONLY through Jesus Christ and repentance of sins.

Yes go to Church for Godly works to keep The only 1 salvation of God alive, including Bible reading, praying, out - reach, witnessing etc. Matt.24 v 13.

The purpose of any church should be first of all to make disciples. We have to win them to Jesus first. Inviting someone to a meeting were the Gospel is taught is a participation in soul winning. We encourage it in our church and are very successful in it. One person plants, the other waters and all partake of the harvest.

I'm not quite sure what your saying Catherine. When God moves through the people in my church, and are lead by the Holy Ghost, we know it. I know churches (some) that do alot of things in self and God is no where in it. If God don't lead me to do something, I won't do it.

Rebecca D=== I do not see how any preacher can proclaim His salvation And refuse to allow the Holy Ghost to lead His people. If you comfront, They always have a scripture that they will use for their own twisted agendas.

Catherine; You can't say that to all churches. All of my congragation is saved and bare the fruit of God.
---Rebecca_D on 2/18/07

Between 80to90% of church member are lost. Perhaps, that is why the good Lord took me out. And promised me my own.
---catherine on 2/18/07

Alot of people are wanting something different in the church they go to. But some (alot) of churches are restricted to let the Holy Ghost lead. They have a program and if they are off one minute they panic. Alot of people are hungry for God, knowing that there is more to God. That is why I invite others to my church. When a sinner walks in, the Holy Ghost gets on them and they make their way to the alter. I won't go to a church where people are too good to see someone saved.

Randy is right. Going to Church is not what saves anyone. But attending Church is still very important. Jesus set it up for a reason. I have attended church services with my Protestant friends and I have brought them to mine. Billy Graham once said something very inspiring - it was something like it didn't matter which church you went to so long as you went to church.

Not everyone who attends a church is saved. However everyone who believes in Jesus and His finished works on the cross is saved. Church is a gathering place for Christians to encourage and fellowship. Surprise, surprise, surprise! The kingdom of God is not in a church or a building.
Luke 17:21 For indeed, the kingdoom of God is within you. Your body is the TEMPLE of the Holy Spirit. It is more important to take care of your body, words and actions.

WHEN I INVITE someone to go to church with me it is for the company. YOU know what, people will go and sit in church mocking GOD for ever, and this makes me ill too.
---CATHERINE on 2/3/07

mima, OH ABSOLUTELY. this is probably the easiest thing for a shy person you doesn,t have the ability to articulate jesus to others.
---tom2 on 2/3/07

The reason I allow the Spirit of God to do the work is so when they ask to attend where I go I in no way may receive any glory or be guilty of moving another man's landmark, so to speak and stealing sheep. Much of this latter day Christianity has become judgmental attitudes and sheep-stealing. I would rather live what I believe and not hide the candle or talent and let the Spirit do the work.

Soul-winning is NOT about taking people to church, but rather, taking people to Christ. If you tell these people how to accept Christ as Lord & Savior, then that IS soul-winning.
---Leslie on 1/20/07

The church can NOT save people, ONLY Christ can.
---Leslie on 1/20/07

My sole purpose for inviting somebody to church is that they become born-again while there.

Whenever I have invited someone to attend church with me it has been with the hope that they would hear a sermon meant just for them and that they would be saved. Unfortunately, sometimes the sermon has been cringe making and I've wanted to slide under my seat and hide from my guest.

**To me soulwinning can be blown out of shape into pride if done for the wrong reason.**

Thank you!

When I was a Baptist before I got saved and became Orthodox, the teens who treated me most meanly during the week would sit around and brag about how many spiritual scalps they had on their belts on Sundsay night.
---Jack on 1/19/07

When we invite someone to church or suggest a church they might want to attend, it is usually with soul-winning in mind unless that person has already professed Jesus.
---Susie on 1/19/07

I don't consider asking people soulwinning. All I have asked either went out of a nicety or conviction just to walk away later. Those who asked me where the church was and showed up on their own have stayed. It is a spiritual work and the Spirit of God has to do the work. To me soulwinning can be blown out of shape into pride if done for the wrong reason.
