I think that going to a good church that God has planted you in does not make you a better Christian unless you are applying what you are learning to your life on a daily basis. If you are just a Sunday Christian and precede with your life as you wish then no it does not make you a better Christian. But if you apply what you are learning and what the Spirit speaks to you while you are there, I believe that it strengthens your walk.

Hebrews 10:22-25 talks about not giving up assembling with others of the same faith. I believe that God wants to stay in regular fellowship with other believers because we then have accountability. Also we are told that we are members of a body. If my lungs told my heart they did not have to get together and work with one another my body would shrivel up and die. It would stop working.

Eph 4:14- talks about the body as well

because of our human nature I think that if we as Christians spend too much time alone, we can get goofy on what we are doing and believe just for the fact that we have no one here helping us to stay on the path. Our walks as Christians are very difficult to maintain, and sometimes we can also get discouraged, it is helpful to have a brother or sister in Christ to help us maintain our faith and encourage us. I found this great article online here on this I will post the link.....
