The church is akin to a coin
The church is akin to a coin; one side is the church local, i.e. the organized body of believers who meet together with the prime intent of sharing the gospel and worshipping Christ. The other side of the same coin is the universal expression, all saints, alive and dead over the thousands of years. To denounce the local expression is to denounce Christ as the scriptures, i.e. the word of God, clearly show that there is a local expression led by officers and those officers are put in place to keep the local church organized.
