What does it mean that the Church is universal?

Christ’s Church is universal because all believers in Christ of all times in all the world belong to it.

Gal. 3:28: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Col. 1:5-6: The word of the truth of the Gospel, which is come unto you, as it is all the world, and bringeth forth fruit, as it does also in you.

Rev. 7:9: After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitutde, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes and palms in their hands.
