Well 2mothershelpers beat me to it. She gave the passage. God commanded it. That should be enough for believers.
As far as my personal opinion. Church serves many purposes. First and most important is corporate worship. God deserves to be worshipped and worshiping with believers is one wonderful way to do it. Second, we live an a world that draws us away from God, just by being busy about the business of the day. We have kids and work and stuff we have to do. Sunday is one time when I stop and focus on God. The structure of formal worship helps with the focus, because it's organized for that purpose. Third is fellowship, I like the people I go to church with. They are my family in Christ. I have known them for many years and we have seen good times and bad times together.
So as with all of God's commands He knew this would be good for us. Since God loves me and wants my best, I'm going to obey.
