Church... a place for somebody to find God, pray to God, or just seeking for calmness. For me, church is a place for gather together and worship God. Do some church srvice. When I was in church, it feels so calm. I love to be there and reading bible. How about you? Do you have some stories about church?

For me church is not only a place to be able to worship and renewed but a place to build relationships with other Christians that will help keep me accountable through out the week and my life.

Yes, a church is a place to worship and renew our covenant with our Heavenly Father. We do this as a congregation so we also have fellowshipping moments with other church members. After all, we are also one big family of our Heavenly Father.

For me Temple is a place which I visit whenever I feel lonely or seeking some answers from GOD. Although its not required to visit temple or church for some answers or anything else as GOD is omnipresent. I can concentrate more towards GOD in a temple. I can talk to GOD in a very decent environment where everyone is silent and praying, that is why I visit temples. It is a very different felling being in temple, it feels like everything is going to be all right and there will not be any hurdles to success.

It is really very important that our conversation with God be done in an environment where there is peace and reverence for us to focus on worshipping and praising Him. In this way, we show that talking to God is a very special moment for us.

The church is both a place and a religious organization. It is a place because is the place where we practice worship to God by means of our Spirituality. The proper place to ask prayers and forgiveness, and the proper place to talk to God. It is a religious organization because a church in different meaning means the organization that is concern with our spiritual guidance, and responsible with the interpretation of the existence of the Supreme being,urging us to follow the rule and regulations set forth according to the will of God.

Precisely, I agree with you that a church (with the small letter "c") is a place where a congregation of believers gather to worship and praise God for His goodness and kindness, while a Church (with the capital letter "C") is a congregation of believers who worship and praise God and follow His commandments.

The church means a building where a group of people go to worship God. Church in spiritual sense is a group of bible believers in God or so called followers of the Lord Jesus.
