Where is the Church Christ created?

1 Tm 3:15 "But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth."
How does an invisible group of disagreeing "believers" qualify as this "church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth"?

Col. 1:18 "He is the head of the body, the church." Eph. 1:22-23 "And he has put all things beneath his feet and gave him as the head over all things to the church, which is the body, the fullness of the one who fills all things in every way."

Mat. 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden."

"The word ‘church’ (Greek: ekklesia) appears over one hundred times in the New Testament, not once with the meaning of a ‘spiritual’ church. The thought of a merely spiritual and invisible church composed of some sort of amorphous collection of ‘true believers; from every denomination… is completely unbiblical. Jesus established only one Church, not a group of squabbling rival denominations." (Surprised By Truth, 120-121).

So where is this Church??
