1 Corinthians 12:12-22 – A Body With Many Members

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. …

Bible Verses About Going To Different Churches

What does the Bible say about attending different churches?

Understanding the goal of church attendance and membership is essential. Christians imitate the local church when they associate with a group of fellow believers.


“As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.”


God created Believers to live in harmony with one another. As believers mature inside the body of Christ, their faith grows and becomes more solid.

All Christians play various and distinct responsibilities, yet each is crucial to the church’s health and each person’s spiritual development.

All Christians are linked to Him and each other as a component of this living organism, just as Christ is the Head of the church.

Each component plays a specific function in the church’s life and is interconnected with the others.

Believers should strive to live in a way that fosters fellowship and harmony with other believers, Christ, the Head, and all other believers.

ROMANS 12:4-5

“For just as we have many members in one body and all the bodies do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”

ROMANS 12:4-5(ESV)

The church is the body of Christ with many p, arts which are the members.

Too frequently, people “church hop” to multiple local congregations to select different aspects of each One because they believe they cannot find one church that “fits their requirements” or provides them with all they should be receiving from a church.

They might go to one church for the music, one for the sermons, and one for the social events.

The issue with this way of thinking is that Christians should associate with a community of believers to contribute, not to receive.

In addition, we appear to be uncommitted to the members of any one church’s leadership, which is a poor example to others.

MATTHEW 28:19-20

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

MATTHEW 28:19-20(ESV)

When someone gets baptized intends to experience this reality and live a blessed life in Christ since he is now a part of a family.

Evangelism is a part of the “forming disciples” process, which involves disciples helping other disciples. Nearly all our interactions with those around us are part of this process.

The method has specific intended components, while others are ones we pick up via training. The majority, though, are unintended and show up in our character.

HEBREWS 10:24-25

“And let us consider together how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

HEBREWS 10:24-25(ESV)

Because of Christ, everyone has unrestricted access to God. We, therefore, urge one another to get closer to God in light of that.

Our purpose in life is to inspire people to love and do good deeds by assisting them in developing their relationship with God.

We get together and support one another in our beliefs.

If you aren’t now connected to a part of a church member church, let me encourage you to do so as soon as possible.

Then, in that church, you are connected; go there and assemble with people. Let your goal be to praise God by inspiring the members of this church every Sunday and possibly at other points throughout the week.


it is God’s will that we regularly attend church; the church reflects the body of Christ, so we are members of that body through salvation.

The church builds our faith, encourages us during trying times, celebrates with us, intercedes for us when needs arise, and helps us to grow our knowledge of God where there might be reasons we could boycott the church. Still, the Bible advises against it because it leads to insecurity, a decline in faith, and spiritual weakness.

Sometimes we attend different churches to satisfy all motives, but God has called us to fellowship with him as one body.
