Church vs. Assembly

Yesterday I mentioned Acts 2:46 and Hebrews 10:25 which talk about the assembly of the saints.

If we look in Scripture, how is “church” used? How is “assembly” used?

Could it be that we have confused the words “church” and “assembly”?

We go to the assembly of the saints. However, we are the saints.

We don’t change churches; we change assemblies.

There are no church splits; there are “assembly splits”. After all, is the body of Christ divided?

Maybe if we had different words, we could untangle these concepts.
