Well. I attend 7 different denomiations of Bible believing churches. It is natural for me. Over my 47 years in Jesus I have lived in many towns. I have many connections. I am, however, a member of only one of the 7. Where I am a member is my wkly Sunday a.m. meeting. There us no midweek prayer or %Bible study, and no outreach, and no evening service. So, I attend another church on Sunday night, Tues night, and Thurs night. Another church I attend once a month on a Saturday night fir joint praise. Thurs afternoon I attend a pensioners Bible study. Once a month I assist at a Church community meal at another church, and so on. There is no conflict. I am committed to all these. If my home church had all these meetings I would attend only my home church, but as it only has one service a week, I am free to attend others weekly. I could join a church that has daily meetings, but it is too far away to afford to go daily, so I only go once a month to the joint praise night. I dont agree with'hopping'churches though. I am very.active in and committed to the ones I attend. I will be with these folk for eternity, so am happy getting to know them here on earth first.

Church is a form of Christian worship to God the Creator, through the Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. 1 John 5:20, " We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life".

Therefore attending two or multiple churches can be compared to schooling, where you attend for knowledge and education, while church attendance, is found higher than that because of the devotion necessary and attached to the Christian worship. Also one can use several textbooks for a particular subject (eg, History), but there is just the holy Bible"that serves as guide to our relationship with the Lord.

Isaiah 57:15, "For thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, "I dwell on a high and holy place, And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly And to revive the heart of the contrite".
