There is only one thing that Jesus said He will build in Matt 16 and that is the church.
Apostle Paul declares the church to be His bride and the purpose of it in the Book of Ephesians.
The apostle in letter to the church at Colossae points out that Christ is head of his body the church. So, you have another term associated with and related to the church.
God’s intent is that through the church His manifold wisdom would be made known to all.
Today, the term church is mostly used in connection with a building and a place. It is more often a tourist point than what it is meant to be.

May we recover our identity and our security in know who we are and woekmtowards what we ought to be!
Life is full of second chances, when things come around a second time, giving an opportunity to change, rectify, reconcile and restore.
Nature itself is full of them, since day gives way to night and night to day. Each year and each season comes around, refreshing the earth and setting things in order.
Every year, month and day is a time to make good what we didn’t do earlier or were not given a chance to do so.
Every birthday, wedding anniversary, and death day is a time to celebrate, remember and be thankful for people, circumstances and opportunities. Work anniversaries and special dates help us mark time and look back, often with a sigh of relief that we have come thus far.
Sadly, many are not quick to grasp second chances and thus lose out on time to make good the lost.
