"Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body (which is the church) in filling up that which is lacking in Christ's afflictions." Colossians 1:24 (NAS)

"He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything." Colossians 1:18 (NAS)

The church that belongs to Jesus is a group or congregation of people (e.g., in Acts 2:38-47 the Lord added three thousand people to His church on that first day...and more each day thereafter as they were being saved).  Although this body of believers may meet at times in a building or a structure; the church itself is not a physical building or structure.
