MEMORY VERSE: …that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish (Eph. 5:27) NKJV
We have the local church and the universal (invincible) church. There is no way, one can belong to the universal church without being a member of a local church. Paradoxically, membership of a local church and not being member of universal church which is the glorious church is to deregistered self from Heaven.

MEMORY VERSE: “And such were some of you, but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God”. (1 Cor. 6:11) NKJV
In both the Old and New Testaments, there were sanctified people who devoted their lives to serve God. In each case, God “set apart” these people from the world around them unto Himself. God still wants a sanctified people, separated from the world of sin and evil unto Him. He wants a spiritual nation, His own special people, who will proclaim the praises of God and who will reflect His glory, values and character.
