      B.  People who have been called by gospel and belong to Christ -- Heb.3:6; I Cor.3:9.

      C.  It does not refer to a material building.

      D. The church does not mean Christ Himself.

      E.  The church is the members who have scripturally believed in Christ and religiously doing things according to       the New Testament pattern -- II Cor.3:5-6; Heb.8:5.

      F.  Literally the Church of Christ means a called out people that belong to Christ.

       B.  The Lord's house shall be established in Jerusalem -- Isa.2:2-3; Mic.4:1-2; Zech.1:16.

       C.  The God of heaven shall set up His kingdom--Dan.2:44; 7:13-14.

       D. I will build my church -- Matt.16:13-19.

            1.  The rock is not Peter - Peter means stone from the Greek (petros).The Greek word for rock is (petras).

            2.  Jesus used the confession of Peter as a rock and foundation.

            3.  Jesus is undeniably the rock and foundation -- I Cor.3:11;10:4

            4.  Peter was never the head of the apostles or the church -- Matt.20:20-28.

        E.  The conditions for entering the church will be proclaimed in Jerusalem -- Lk.24:46-49.

        F.  The House of God is the Heaven Gate --Gen.28:16-17.

              1.  The house of God is gate of Heaven

              2.  The house of God is the church of God -- I Tim.3:14-15.
