The church Jesus is now building one lively stone at a time (Mat. 16:18; I Pet. 2:5) is His final or eschatological church. It is the church that will spend eternity with Him. Membership in this church automatically makes one a member of this church in its local, visible expression or manifestation. (See the Day of Pentecost, for example.) Its members are added by God, not voted in by man. The church Jesus is now building and will one day build to completion is a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and the New Covenant people of God (I Pet. 2:9-10). It is the church of the firstborn ones, whose names are written in Heaven (Heb. 12:23). The church Jesus is now building is not an invisible church. It is visible to the Triune Godhead, to the angels, to Satan, to demons, and, most likely, to its members now in glory. It is not completely visible to its members on earth, but neither is it completely invisible to them.
