The Church can be found wherever two or three born-again believers gather together in His name. The Church isn't an organization or institution. It is not represented by any denomination or local charter. The Church is an organism that has been grafted into the olive tree, which is Israel. Therefore, any church, regardless of its name or denomination, can contain the true Church, consisting of born-again believers. This is the Church that Jesus identified and promised to build. We should never be misled into thinking that our organizational structure, denomination, local church, missionary organization, or any other "religious" entity represents the true Church of Jesus Christ on earth. Any Christian institution in its function and office may only serve as a scaffold for the building of the Church. Let me explain: During times of construction, we see a seemingly confusing amount of tools, building material, dirt, sand, machinery, and cranes. The scaffold is the structure that usually surrounds the building while it's under construction. When the building is finished, the scaffold and all the other equipment is removed and then the beautiful new building is revealed.
In a spiritual sense, we are a building of which the Apostle Peter wrote, "Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ" (1st Peter 2:5). These "lively stones" are the born-again believers. But nothing from this "spiritual house" is visible. The Church of Jesus Christ would not be destroyed even if every church and Christian institution closed this very day.
