"...So then you are no longer strangers & aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints & members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles & prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In Him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit" (Ephesians 2:19-21).
