In the Gospel according to Matthew, Jesus promises to build his church. He says, “So, then, I speak to you because you are Peter. And upon this rock, I will build my church (ἐκκλησίαν) and the gates of hades will not over power it (αὐτῆς)” (Matthew 16:18).
The word “church” and the pronoun “it” above are in the singular. In other words, Jesus says that he will build the church, the one church.
