The reign of God means his own kingdom in heaven and his kingdom on earth the church.
God's church is the Universal Church. That means all who are true followers of Jesus Christ, cleansed by His blood; regardless their color, nationality or denomination.
The Roman Catholic Church is catholic (Universal), One, Holy, and Apostolic. Assemblies of God, nor any other church or religion, has all these characteristics. The Universal Church is believed to be founded by Jesus Christ.
To become a member of a church you must attend church often. Then Get Baptised and then your in the kingdom of God.
When the true church is upon the earth, where there is a prophet, a priest or a righteous man unto whom God gives His oracles, there is the kingdom of God; and where the oracles of God are not there the kingdom of God is not.

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) a kingdom could refer to a couple things.First is the Kingdom of God. If someone references 'building the kingdom' or something similar, they are referring to the Kingdom of God. The Bible Dictionary, published by the Church, puts it this way, "Generally speaking, the the kingdom of God on the earth is the Church. It is a preparation for the greater kingdom-the celestial or kingdom of heaven. However, kingdom of heaven is sometimes used in scripture to mean the Church, meaning that the true church on the earth is the path to heaven, and is the kingdom of heaven on earth."Second, the Kingdoms of Glory. Mormons believe that within heaven there are three 'kingdoms' or degrees. The highest of these is the Celestial Kingdom, followed by the Terrestrial and Telestial Kingdoms. There are different requirements to be admitted into each kingdom. You can learn about the kingdoms of glory at the "Related Link" below, it's too much to include here.
Unlike the Catholic Church and other similar churches that baptize you into their church, the Assemblies of God believe in water baptism. However, the Assemblies of God believes that water baptism is an external evidence of an internal conversion. When you are baptized at an Assemblies of God church, you are baptized into the kingdom of God not into the Assemblies of God.
Universal Life Church was created in 1962.
Universal Catholic Church was created in 2007.
The advantage of having the church "keys" of the kingdom that admits others to the kingdom and the power to shut out from the kingdom. The disadvantage is if u pervert the gospel keeping others out of the kingdom, i wouldn't want to be in your shoes facing God at the end.
