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.

The NT doesn't compare the local church (the church you go to) with a body. But it does compare the universal church (all believers in Christ) to a body.The universal church is like a body because it is made up of many parts (believers).These parts should function in harmony together - just as the many parts of a body function together.No part is more important than another part. Every part has a function.Just as a head leads/controls a body, Christ is the head of the universal church.Comment: Just what do you mean by universal as a mainstream church carries this as part of its name? The Bible calls the Church Jesus established, 'the Church of God,' in about 12 places in the N.T.. Is this your 'universal' Church?? This Church, by the way, has always had the 'little flock.'
