What is the church of Christ? When Peter made the great confession concerning the person and purpose of Jesus, Jesus said that upon that kind of faith (this rock) He would build His church. What church? It is the church that belongs to Christ. This church is His body. It is all the saved of all time of all nations. It is His bride. It's members are citizens in His kingdom. There is no salvation outside of the body of Christ, so understanding and appreciating this church is vital to our salvation.
