On The Creeds by St. Augustine

Section 14. It follows after commendation of the Trinity, |The Holy Church.à

14. It follows after commendation of the Trinity, |The Holy Church.| God is pointed out, and His temple. |For the temple of God is holy,| says the Apostle, |which (temple) are ye.| This same is the holy Church, the one Church, the true Church, the catholic Church, fighting against all heresies: fight, it can: be fought down, it cannot. As for heresies, they went all out of it, like as unprofitable branches pruned from the vine: but itself abideth in its root, in its Vine, in its charity. |The gates of hell shall not prevail against it.|
