The temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16)
The bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:22-32)
The body of Christ (Colossians 1:18,24; Ephesians 1:22-23)
The kingdom of God’s son (Colossians 1:13)
The house of God (1 Timothy 3:15)
The church of God (1 Corinthians 1:2)
The church of the first-born (Hebrews 12:23)
The church of the Lord (Acts 20:28)
The churches of Christ (Romans 16:16)

The origin of the Church is:

Built by Jesus Christ (Matthew 16:13-18)
Purchased by the blood of Christ (Acts 20:28)
Built on Jesus Christ as the only foundation (1 Cor. 3:11)
Not built on Peter, Paul, or any other man (1 Cor.1:12-13)
Composed of the saved; added to it by the Lord who saves them (Acts 2:47)

Christians (Acts 11:26; Acts 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16)

The local Church has:

Elders (also called bishops and pastors) who oversee the flock (1 Tim.3)
Deacons, who serve the church (1 Timothy 3:8-13; Philippians 1:1)

Members, who love the Lord and each other (Philippians 2:1-5)

The Lord Jesus Christ:

Shed His blood for the church (Acts 20:28)
Established the church (Matthew 16:18)
Added saved people to the church (Acts 2:47)
