Ephesians 2:19-22New American Standard Bible (NASB)
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the [a]saints, and are of God’s household,20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone,21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy [b]temple in the Lord,22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.
Ephesians 3:6-10New American Standard Bible (NASB)
6 to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel,7 of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of God’s grace which was given to me according to the working of His power.8 To me, the very least of all [a]saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ,9 and to [b]bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things;10 so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 4:11-13New American Standard Bible (NASB)
11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some asevangelists, and some as pastors and teachers,12 for the equipping of the [a]saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ;13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the [b]knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature [c]which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
Ephesians 5:23-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,27 that He might present to Himself the church [a]in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.
