The Beloved of Christ
The universal church is the Body of Christ composed of all Christians throughout the world. As children of God we belong to the family of God and His family is the church. The local church is the body of Christ composed of Christians that live in the same proximity who collectively and regularly meet to worship and serve the Lord in truth and in spirit. Jesus Christ gave Himself for the church. He is the head of the church, we the members of the church comprise the body. Jesus Christ is also the Bridegroom. We are His spiritual building, the church. We are its super structure. When we are born again we become members of the Universal church for we are baptized into His body, the church. The Word of God declares that we should attend and support His local church and serve in its multiple ministries.
