Churches (local), Summary:

A local church is an assembly of professed believers on the Lord Jesus Christ, living for the most part in one locality, who assemble themselves together in His name for the breaking of bread, worship, praise, prayer, testimony, the ministry of the word, discipline, and the furtherance of the Gospel, (Heb 10:25); (Act 20:7); (Co1 14:26); (Co1 5:4); (Co1 5:5); (Phi 4:14-18); (Th1 1:8); (Act 13:1-4).

Such a church exists where two or three are thus gathered (Mat 18:20). Every such local church has Christ in the midst, is a temple of God, and indwelt by the Holy Spirit (Co1 3:16); (Co1 3:17). When perfected in organization a local church consists of "saints, with the bishops elders and deacons."
