As Believers, We Are Not to Forsake the Assembly

I am seeing a trend that many people are no longer attending church or even attending Christian meetings. This trend can set a dangerous precedent. We all have excuses, but are those excuses valid? For example, a new Follower of Christ who is won to the Lord but never gets engaged in a group of like-minded Believers may soon fall away from the faith because they are not being discipled or mentored.
