Ask Phillip - The Meaning of 'Church'?

What is the meaning of the word 'church'? Is it a building, a meeting or a profession? Phillip Jensen talks about how meanings of words come from their usage and so the word 'church' could mean different things to the Christian and the non-Christians. Jensen says there is then a danger that the word will be misunderstood as it is read in the Bible.
