Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
(Psalms 46:10 KJV)
Unless God is revealed to us through personal experience, we can never really know God. Most of us know about God, but that is quite different from knowing God. We learn about God through the functions of the church such as Sunday school, youth groups and activities, and worship services. Many people stop in their quest for God at this point. It is one thing to be introduced to a person, but quite another thing to know him personally.
