Church is referred to in verse (22:40) of chapter (22) sūrat l-ḥaj (The Pilgrimage):

Sahih International: [They are] those who have been evicted from their homes without right - only because they say, "Our Lord is Allah."

And Allah will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.
