When the Bible refers to the church as a “building” it is NOT talking about bricks and mortar. In part two of The Building: Christ’s Presence in the Church, Pastor Colin Smith explains that this “building” analogy actually speaks of Jesus’ presence in the church.
Scripture: Ephesians 2:19-22
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,[a] but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by[b] the Spirit.
