Christ said to Peter in Matthew 16:18 (NKJV) Upon this rock I will build my church. So what exactly is His Church ? Who and what are they?

Celefoe you worlds of absolutes and a nice box to fit God and Christ in is refreshing but as simpleton as gravity as an absolute.
You sound like God's jail keeper or School Teacher. I am sure God does not need your restrictions of directions.
i really dont care what you think eric. your sloppy kind love is not for me and i do not find it scriptural, in fact there are many proverbs against it
Clearly Celafoe you are not loved by those you know. But I love you, warts and all.
eric, nothing could be further from the truth.
unfortunately for you God is a God of absolutes as well as mercy and love. And if there is something I do NOT do it is put God in a box. the veil is rent. But I believe He means what He says.
Thanks for your answer Eric. I have not heard of the Christ's Church of the Resurrection. Is it fairly new?
Oh no graceinus, we are only a couple hundred parishioners. We even just rent space at a church. But something tells me there is an organization of churches that has the name.
Thanks for your answer JThomp42- I wonder how to idendify those who are the "Elect"?
In my understanding if I understand what you are asking? The "elect" would be God's people, the Jewish.
the elect are all who accept Jesus is the messiah and repent, are baptized (2) and follow Him. The jews are not the elect unless they recognize Jesus and follow Him also
