The need for precision when talking about fallen "churches"

When Great Churches Fall « A Brick in the Valley
It’s those churches whose names are staring at me.
Hubris, Denial, and Nostalgia
Nothing to add here but my response (which is awaiting moderation):
As much as I understand what he's trying to say (and agree with it as well) and that he's using the word "church" as it used by contemporary society, I believe one should still remember that, from a biblical perspective, there are no churches- great or otherwise- but rather the church.  The church is not an institution nor a building, but the catholic (small "c") body of believers.  As such, individuals, even congregations, may fall astray, but the church itself cannot fall since the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Maybe it's just me, but I believe he could have made the same point without effecting this error.
