Church

Eph 3:10, 1 Tim 3:15
Through the Church God’s saving will and manifold wisdom are revealed. The Church is the pillar and foundation of the Truth.

Romans 9-11, John 3:5,
1 Co 12:28 ff, Heb 7:22

Israel rejects it’s Messiah.
Church, the religious assembly, is the true Israel and the heir of the covenant promises.
Baptism is necessary, confers membership in the Church, and replaces circumcision as the sign of the covenant
The assembly reaches fulfillment in Christ the Bridegroom, as Head of the hierarchical Church.

Church is the place where the Spirit flourishes
Hippolytus, Apostolic Tradition, AD 215

The Catholic Church has Jewish roots, and is the mystical body of Christ ( Acts 9:4-5 ) ( Romans 12: 4-5 ) ( 1 Corinthians 12: 12-27 ) ( Colossians 1: 18-24 ) ( John 10: 1-18, The Sheepfold.) ( Apocalypse 21, The New Jerusalem. ) ( Ephesians 5, The Bride. ) ( 1 Peter 3: 18-22, The ark of Noe. ) ( Mark 16:16, Necessary for Salvation. Some may be members connected in desire, even if they do not know the Church through no fault of their own. They receive grace through the Church.
The Catholic Church was founded by Jesus Christ. It’s head is Jesus Christ. It’s members are the faithful. It’s soul is the Holy Spirit. It’s life is grace ( Luke 10:16 ) ( Acts 5:12-42
