How To Behave In Church

“But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.”

I Timothy 3:15

Behave – to manage the actions of oneself in a particular way; to conduct oneself in a proper manner.

As a parent, I am always trying to make sure my children behave. Whether at home or out in public, I am trying to teach them to behave. I want them to act and conduct themselves properly. Now, I understand that they are still kids and that doesn’t always happen, but I want them to know that the expectation is still there.

Just like I have expectations for my children to obey, God has expectations for us to obey, especially when it comes to His house, the church.

Behaving and learning how to conduct oneself properly isn’t just for children, it is also for adults. We always need to be evaluating our conduct and making sure that we are doing everything we possibly can to be the best representation of our Father.

People know you by your behavior…or lack of it. Do you realize the world is watching your behavior as a Christian? You are either conducting yourself in a proper manner according to the Word of God or you are misbehaving and being a poor example of a Christian!

I believe I mentioned this quote in my last blog, but it fits here today: “Your walk talks louder than your talk talks.” Our actions and mannerisms make up our behaviour. What we do defines who we are.

We concern ourselves with how to act at work and in the store. We teach our children how they should behave out in public. We teach and show proper behaviour in many places…except for church!

The Bible gives us many ways to behave ourselves out in the world, I want to look at this verse and see how we should behave in church. What are some things we should do to conduct ourselves as a well-behaved church member?

I want to take the next few blogs and go through a list of ways to behave in church. Hopefully we can learn something for each one so that we can be a better church member in the church we attend and also that we can be a better Christian in our daily life.

I was looking up some quotes about behaviour and I found this one interesting:

“Don’t tell me what you believe in. I’ll observe how you behave and I will make my own determination.” Alex Trebek


I don’t know if Mr. Trebek professes to be a Christian or if he is affiliated with any religion but this quote just goes to show that people are watching you and how you behave and how you act will determine what they think about you.

People are watching, whether they are your fellow church member or your neighbor, they are watching to see how you act. Whether your actions point towards the Lord or towards yourself and the world. They are watching to see how you behave, to see if you are truly conducting yourself in the manner of a Christian.
