Church, The 

The term "church" is from Greek words kyriakon, "belonging to the Lord," and ekklesia, "assembly." Church can also indicate a particular church body or denomination, such as the Episcopal Church; or a particular congregation or parish; or the building or place where a congregation gathers. The Hymnal 1982 provides sections of hymns for "The Church" (Hymns 517-527) and "The Church's Mission" (Hymns 528-544), including "The Church's one foundation" (Hymn 525), "Let saints on earth in concert sing" (Hymn 526), and "Spread, O spread, thou mighty word" (Hymn 530).
