yes and until Christ told peter upon this rock i will build my church. this is first time Church word was used. Christ is the corner stone the foundation the Rock . when he said the gates of hell will not prevail .. nothing would stop His Church being built. - from acts chapter 2 we see the Church exploding in growth. the Church is the local assembly aka the Body of Christ .

the church is not perfect if it was we would have no need for Christ. :cross
As the church is the body of Christ, it sure is perfect. (1 Cor 12:27)

As the church is the body of Christ, it sure is perfect. (1 Cor 12:27)
Now ye are the body of Christ and members in particular. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. (1Co 12:27-28 KJV)

"Paul reminds the Corinthians that they are the body of Christ. This cannot mean the Body of Christ in its totality. Neither can it mean a Body of Christ, since there is only one Body. It can only mean that they collectively form a microcosm or miniature of the Body of Christ. Individually each one is a member of that great cooperative society. As such he should fulfil his function without any feeling of pride, independence, envy, or worthlessness." (Believers Bible)
The gifts listed above are a little too much for me, but I do try to show others the Word of God. The least any of us can do is to try and live a life that is pleasing to God, without being hypocritical about it. So: -

Let us examine ourselves.
Examine yourselves to see whether you are living in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless, indeed, you fail to meet the test! (2Co 13:5 NRSV).
