Which Church Is Right? E. M. Zinn
In Matt. 16:18 Jesus said, "I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." "My church" indicates sole possession. The thought which naturally comes to mind is, what church did He mean, or which did He build? Was it a church comparable to the rest of the churches? Or is it a separate, distinct body in which all its members have salvation? The fact that Jesus said, "I will build my church," definitely shows that He was the builder and organizer. One popular opinion is that the Church of God is a church among the rest‹on par with them and like them in formality and association. Jesus said in St. John 10:9, 10, "I am the door: by me if any man enter in he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture." We go through the door (Christ), which is the only process by which we obtain salvation and membership in His church. Read more at:

A saved Christian (repented and forgiven) has christ in himself and thus is the temple.
And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. Eph 2:20-22
