"Local Church"

"To speak of a 'local' church is like speaking of wet water, hot fire, or cold ice.  There is no other kind, in a Biblical sense.  The use of the world 'church' to mean a meeting house, a denomination, or a universal hierarchy, or religious monstrosity, visible or invisible, is completely unscriptural.  

In the Bible the world 'church' (Greek ekklesia) means assembly, only and always.  It never refers to an unknown, unassembling, confused, and scattered multitude.  Such a 'church' exists only in the imagination of heretics desperately trying to justify their schisms."    Rosco Brong
