Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?”
Many people dream of seeing their pastor performing one activity or the other. These activities can either be good or too strange to the congregation. Depending on the fruits the pastor bears, However, dreams about a church is a picture of salvation and divine empowerment.

It means that you are going to see the hand of God upon your life when you visit the church soon. The dream about church could be positive or negative depending how it played in your dream.
The size, structure and people of the church also matters a lot when producing the spiritual meanings. Many have been talking or doubting the anointing of some pastors heading some churches. This does not necessarily mean they are not good priest or pastor in our society.
Other meanings to put in mind when you across church in your dreams on many occasions. The followings are the spirits that associates with the church. They are as follows:
DREAM ABOUT THE CHURCH – CONGREGATION
“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”
Church dream is a very common phenomenon experienced by many faithful Christians. It reflects their commitment, passion and faith in God. Dreaming about church is a pointer for a sound Christian life. There are many different types of churches and they have different doctrines. For example, a church may see indecent dressings among its members as nothing. While other Pentecostal churches may frown at it totally. It is important to find out what makes you dream about your church or your pastors.
If you dream of people praising the Lord in a church, it indicates thanksgiving and appreciation. It also means people are referencing the names of the Lord. If you see the congregation complaining bitterly about the head pastor, it means the leadership has been compromised, hence it will impact negatively unto the people. Maybe you have some pastors that are not trusted, dreaming about him advising you may pass bad seeds to you. If you are living a happy Christian life, church dream is encouraging you not to give up attending some of the church services.
The church is the body of Christ, of which He is the head. Ephesians 1:22-23. Church dream is always associated with faith building, working in God’s vineyard and be feeding on His word under an assigned priest/pastor. You may be having this dream because you are backsliding, troubled, or you are being used to manipulate people’s mind against the pastor act of operation.
- Dream about the Bible
- Dream about pastor
- Dream about Jesus Christ
Many people deliberately visit a particular church when they want to know all about the pastor belief, power and doctrines, but the fact is that the church as a dream symbol is quite different from the building of a church. While finding yourself visiting a wrong church in a dream indicates a drawback to sin and wickedness.
If you are a Christian who believes in the power of the church, and seeing yourself visiting your church in the dream, or perhaps, you are invited to a church by your friend, it means God is waiting to bless you in a church. When you finally go, it shows that God will meet you at the point of your needs. Take the case of Jonah as an example.
Many frustrated people stopped going to church for one thing or the other. But if you are not a believer, and you dream of attending church service, this means that God is trying to change your identity, transform you and bring you back fully to Christ(Col 1:13).
This dream could also mean that a particular person or group of people from church may come to preach the word of God to you, in order to win your souls for Christ (Matt 6:33). Are you a smoker, drunkard, fornicator, thief, faithless Christian etc? The Bible says, when you indulge in this and many other condemable acts, you will not inherit the kingdom of God. So, the importance of this message is for genuine repentance, restitution and forgiveness.
If you are thinking of the next church to go for your miracles, or breakthroughs, the appearance of dream church could occur. And such dream might be a sign that you have problem with your faith or you simply do not know how to treat your present issues with the right prayers.
However, the type of church you go can contribute to your prayer life or reduce it to prayerlesness. Frequent dream about your church might also reflect your thoughts about your service in that church and possible some members trying to frustrate you. This dream might also be a symbol of your preparations for expanding your cause by working for Him.
2 Timothy 4:3-4, ”For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Dream activities in some areas.
- If you dream of singing in a church, if you are not a chorister, it means God wants to use you greatly in that department, to make you useful in the church and promote your destiny. But if you are a chorister at present, it means you are going to achieve your aims through your voice. David did this and he was elevated.
- If you dream of praying in the church, it means your spiritual antenna is alive. If you don’t know how to pray in the real life, this type of dream will boost your prayer life and increase your faith level if you have been working towards your spiritual development. Generally, it shows that you will win, conquer, victorious, testify, heal through prayers. Do not give up. Since God answers prayers, you must not stop praying.
- If you see an empty church (No one in the church), This is a bad sign. If you are a pastor, it means you are going to experience sharp decrease of members in your church, lose of anointing and it also portend a clear sign that the gate of hell is trying to prevail against your ministries. However, if you don’t own a church, and you keep seeing a church empty, it shows that such church is spiritually dried. If you go there, you will have yourself to blame except you pray fervently until God convince you to stay.
- If you dream of sweeping in the church, it means you are valueable, humble in the sight of God. It also portend that you are broken and obedient. When you keep sweeping your church, it is sure revelation that your way will soon open and your joy will manifest. Don’t give up. Let people begin to mock, be rest assured, the mockery will turn to testimony.
- If you dream that people are fighting in the church, it means such church is currently facing some spiritual battles. So praying for your church or other churches in the world can promote the love towards you.
- If you dream that a pastor is touching your head in the church, Be careful with the way you meet any pastors to pray for you. So when a pastor touched your head, it means your virtues have been stolen. Restoration can occur through prayers and fasting. Someone says, if he is my pastor then you need to pray against evil laying of hands. Please be informed that devil also performs miracles. Study your mood after this dream and it will help shape the true meaning of this dream.
- If you dream that you ran into a church, it means you have come to find a place of comfort, peace and joy with God. It has been recalled that most people that ran into a church have received strange attacks while outside, so coming to the church will save them from destruction and death. This also means a time to repent, and it also means that God has given you another chance to give your life to Him.
- If you dream that thief came to the church and stole other valueable things like money, instruments etc, this is usually not a good sign. This means that the church is currently affected with losses. And when losses are too visible or a common situation, it can wreck the growth of the church and drain out gradually the anointing upon the head of the pastor. So you have the authority to pray for your church protection, growth and progress.
- If you dream of crying in a church, it means you are sharing your emotion, burdens in tears with the Holy Spirit. Don’t worry, that tears of sorrow will be converted to tears of joy (Psalm 126:1)
- If you dream that you are outside the church, it indicates you are yet to be saved. Perhaps, sin is hindering your salvation, your righteousness and your deliverance. Please deal with the strongman in you that wants you to continue this kind of life.
- If you dream that a church caught fire, or the roof of your church is leaking, That’s a demonic sign that your church has been marked down spiritually for destruction. The leaking part is an arrow of projection into the church. These are some of the attacks church should expect, but the Lord who has always been there for his servants will send such attacks back to the senders.
- If you see a church is dark in the dream, it means there is high level of witchcraft manipulation being practiced by some elements in the church. Please pray for God to open your eyes to know this kinds of church you may avoid in future.
- If you dream of taking communion in the church, it means to establish a personal relationship with Christ and to partake in the fruit of the spirit. This types of dream keeps you away from sin and gives you the ability to abide by His promises.
DREAM ABOUT THE CHURCH – BIBLICAL AND SPIRITUAL MEANING
Hebrews 10:25, ”Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
If you dream that you are inside a church for the purpose of meeting a pastor means you are seeking for spiritual guidance and prayer support. If such pastor is a known person and can be accessible, its a divine message for you to meet him to support you in prayers. If the pastor is not known or his anointing is questionable, this dream reveals that God is asking you to meet any pastor who will pray along with you to see you out of this problem. There are many of them. With prayers, God can lead you to the right person or pastors.
If you are aspiring to be a pastor, prophet, evangelist etc, it is likely you are dreaming about your areas of calling in the church. Contrary to people’s view, it is perfectly normal to be sweeping, washing the toilet, being a gate-man of your church. Even if you are a big man, it doesn’t mean a bad omen to have found yourself in that department.
When you obey God’s voice, you will blossom and prosper in life. If in the dream you’re happy and excited, a church dream might reveal this to be a positive change. You may have some difficulties in making yourself useful in His vineyard. Or, more simply, you have discovered your place of worship but the level of change is not accessible in that church. However, How you deal with this change in the dream might change your perspectives about some churches.
However, if you are not happy with the way some people treated you in your dream about the church, it means you are likely not to receive your blessings in full in that church because of this set of people. This dream could be related to a lost of salvation, holiness or change in your relationship with God. Certain changes in life for the worse can make one feel depressed or hopeless as the case maybe.
Have a think about what the pastor represent in this type of your dream. If the pastor is good at preaching, praying or performing miracle, maybe you are worried about what he said or does in the church. Maybe you are worried that you are going to waste your time while attending the church programmes. If his operation is not in line with God’s directives, you may not grow or have a divine encounter. In most cases, dreaming about the church might be because you are looking for a connection with your pastor or another pastor.
The Bible also makes it clear that there are good leaders and bad leaders in the church (1 and 2 Timothy, and Titus). By the fruit they possess, (you will know them) you can able to distinguish between the good and the bad. It’s also clear that the lives of God’s children are deeply affected not only by the teaching of the pastors, but also by the example they set for their members. So, when a pastor is gradually dropping off his original assignment, and thereby embracing more lucrative calling that is prosperity inclined, then devil is ruling his ministry.
However, there may be situations in which, largely due to a failure of leadership, a person may find themselves in a church where sin is going unchallenged. Again, in that situation, there are possibilities for the person who wants to stay and keep standing up for holiness and repentance to leave such place of worship. However, if the Holy Spirit keeps telling you to stay or walk away, listen first and obey accordingly.
Dreaming about seeing many people praying inside a church means that the Holy Spirit is telling you to start attending a prayer church, a church that deals with deliverance. Another meaning shows that joining a prayer group of your church might be helpful to you in large capacity. However, if you dream that many are falling under God’s anointing, it reveals a sign or message that God also dwells in that church. Similarly, a dream where people are praying, singing or studying the Bible may also symbolize that it is time for you to establish a good relationship with God and good people you may known them to be highly disciplined in faith.
The altar of a church is a place of power, and sacrifice, however, it has other several spiritual interpretations. For example, if you dream of a church altar, it means that God is letting you to contact that altar through prayers and confession. Many have received lots of miracles by laying hands on their church altar. Dreams where the church altars have been manipulated for evils purposes, for example, by burying things, or plating charms on it, then it is time for you to stay away from such altar if only the revelation is associated with your present church. Or perhaps, you see a person spraying water or something on the altar without the permission of the authority in the reality, please with matter of urgency, raise a quick alarm to attract people.
Dream about your church can also be triggered by the problem in the church, ranging from lack of love, tribalism, too often judge an accused person. In your waking life, you may feel that you have been abandoned, rejected, denied freedom to act. These are some of the thoughts that may tell you to leave the church.
It is common to see people judging people in our churches today, this prevent lots of people to work for God. Dream about churches can actually assist you in moving forward in your waking life, come to the spirit of accepting Christ as the Lord and personal saviour. Are you feeling insecure, threatened in your current church? If you are feeling abandoned by a person in your church, the message you need to examine is who do you feel is letting you down right now in church? Maybe you feel like someone is going to pull you down. Or perhaps you just have this all over basic fear that your pastor doctrine is tantamount to hell.
Your dream could be suggesting that you have to stand your ground whether they are against your attitude or not. Kindly pray to God show you the way out. The best way to leave a false church is to embark on fasting and prayers, constantly remind God the names of the ministry and the head, this will help the Holy Spirit to take a quick step towards your requests.
DREAM ABOUT FALSE CHURCH – OCCULT
1 John 4:1-6, ”Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
How to leave a false church
- Pray fervently
- Discuss it with trusted Christian friends.
- Read your Bible oftentimes.
- Take a short break off the church and go to a place to pray about it.
- Study your dream about church, pastors and its environment.
If you find yourself in a false church, you will have problem to move out. Why? Because you have been hypnotize to believe all the abracadabra miracles and heresies from the occult pastor. However, if you also dream where your pastor or a particular pastor is in the kingdom of darkness, it might look so funny that a famous and well respected man of God is in the dark rooms of the wicked, it might be his power is attached to the hand. Or perhaps, the enemy is using his face to deceive you so that you can leave his church. But in all, you have to put it into prayers. There are lots of churches springing up on a daily basis as if God is giving them awards. But this is a selfish motives.
If you dream of occult people in a church, observe a known person among that group, because such dream is mysteriously wicked.

You have to be vigilant, because we are in endtime where all sorts of strange demonstrations are happening in our churches.
Be wise and be aware, but before you leave any church, take some time to evaluate your own motives or actions. Any problems that you see might be a result of your own perception and not really issues at all. Your inclination to avoid a particular church may be valid, but it could also be your own pride thinking you deserve better care, love and attention. Always check yourself and your motives.
