Is there any significance in naming a church something other than "church?" The Tabernacle was an Old Testament temporary dwelling place of God. The Temple was Old Testament as well. Today, Christians are the temple of the living God (I Cor 3:16). Jesus said, "Upon this rock I will build my "church." As far as I can tell, the Greek word ekklesia is almost exclusively translated as "church" or "churches" with the exception of a few times that it is translated "assembly." So, are there any biblical ramifications in naming a church something like Grace Baptist "Temple" or Grace Baptist "Tabernacle" instead of Grace Baptist "Church?"
