Someone once reported on a study that was conducted which revealed that the average person who attended church on a regular basis actually lived 6.7 years longer than those who do not. The churches of the St. Johns area do not guarantee the conclusion of that study, however, it can be said with certainty that worship is an important element contributing to the high quality of living in the St. Johns area. Through the area's churches, individuals and families can grow in their knowledge of God's Word and experience God's love. Local congregations meet regularly for worship and to minister in service to the community.

There are very fine churches in the St. Johns area. Finding one that meets you right where you are in life sometimes takes time and effort, but the blessings can be "out of this world." Finding a church home that meets the spiritual needs of you and your family will change your life. You will find relevance, an accepting climate, rich friendships, inspiration, fresh perspective on God's Word, and positive influence. By joining with one of the local churches you will be with people whose lives are changing for the good and you will be with people who are able to help you with needs in your life.
