There is more church buildings than birds flying in the air here in Pickens County, S.C. right on the buckle of the bible belt. I often wonder why they just do not sell them all and build one temple greater than Solomon's~for their overall beliefs are not much different, but I do know why....EACH is looking for their own RELIGION, and the way they think God should be worship, not to mention, there is big money in religion and it offers many of them a good life of ease without working very hard for it.
Working through religion is the main way Satan deceived people into making them very comfortable in having a false hope of doing service unto God in the manner that best suits their lifestyle and liking. After all, who do not want to live forever IF there is a life after this life are their thoughts~so a little religion most can endure.
Church membership is UNKNOWN is the scriptures. In the scriptures, they often worship together according to their proximity~yet that did not mean that they were forbidden to meet with other saints in other locations. In our day, EVERYONE is building a name for themselves and quickly lay claims on most who walk through the door more than once, they go after them like hound dog would toward raw meat.
Now If they thought you had some DEEP convictions, then you would be asked to MOVE ON for they care little about doctrines, more about NUMBERS, for numbers means BUSINESS to them
There are a few exceptions to this rule for sure, but those people will be FEW IN NUMBERS and most likely not too much to offer the flesh and your little ones. There are a few, few men of God still standing, but they are UNKNOWN to the world and certainly hated by them.
I would not be looking for an outward church to fit in but would be looking at my heart daily to see how I could make myself a more shining light in this dark world of RELIGION. Most of God's children have fled from Judea and are hiding in the mountains of God's safe haven that he has provided for them. 2nd Timothy 3:1-4:5
