Corporate Body of Christ
The call of Jesus is personal but not purely individual; Jesus summons his followers not only to an individual calling but also to a corporate calling...But we are not summoned to be a bunch of individual believers, rather to be a community of faith. In the New Testament, it is not so much that there are different churches in different places as that there is one church in many places. Os Guiness, The Call, p. 98, 101.
