      I like Luther’s definition of “the church”.

      “The church is where the gospel is proclaimed in it’s purity, and the sacraments are administered in accordance with that gospel.”

      This is my addition:

      ‘And there are people there who believe it.’

      You mentioned “membership” on the podcast, but I hope you discuss what that means, whether it is biblical, etc….

      I think that is an important issue.

      Jesus used the word only twice.

      So, I suppose the “definition” would be the first time he said it (Matthew 16:18) and I’d conclude that it means the successors (and their followers) of Peter.
