New International Version (NIV)
8 Come near to God and he will come near to you.
I don't buy into those who claim they don't need a church because they can worship God anywhere. Yes, we can worship anywhere; but a believer always needs a church, not a building, but a fellowship of believers. I do think, however, that I could worship God in a hay-filled barn with dust motes dancing in filtered light; but then I was raised to love my grandpa's barn. As a child it was my closest thing to Heaven on earth.
