The church is not a building where Christians meet but the building is the church time in which the believers meet. However, the Bible uses the metaphor of a building to picture the church which is mystically made up of believers with Jesus Christ as the Cornerstone.
Paul, the apostle gives us the analogy in (I Cor. 3:11), “For no other ‘foundation’ can no man lay than is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” Then Jesus becomes the head of the church and connected to His people. The Apostle Peter addresses the church as consisting of people to a living mystical organism in (I Pet. 2:5), “Ye also as ‘lively stones,’ are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ”; living spiritual body (Eph. 2:21), “In whom all the building fitly ‘framed’ together groweth unto a holy temple.”
.Jesus is the foundation “And he is the head of the body, the church, with church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have preeminence,” (I Cor. 1:18), and the dwelling place for God. The Holy Spirit indwells each Christian. The problem is, many people come into the church systems today who never repent and open to the Spirit of Jesus Christ or the Holy Spirit. The “church” is “ekklesia.” It means, “A group of people called from their homes or places of business to assemble together.”
