The plurality of church here clearly refers to the several churches of the first century, those established by Paul and others.

We sincerely follow steadfastly the Apostles Doctrine as did the early Christians, Acts 2:41-42. Members of the churches of Christ wear only the name Christian, the name given the followers of the early church by the Holy Spirit in Acts 11:26.
