2. Congregations Are Determined By Geography
Often, Christians determine which church to attend after visiting several. They will most likely then pick which one suits them best. For Amish people, however, the congregation that they belong to depends on the geographic area in which they live. Families that live within a specific space attend the same house church, presided over by a bishop, two to four preachers, and a community elder. There is no formal church building, church governing council, or any of the other church structures familiar to modern Christians. .
