Is the local church fundamentally like, or fundamentally unlike, a business or corporation?

I have heard it said that they are fundamentally alike, but I think I disagree: I think that shepherding a flock is fundamentally unlike managing a corporation.  I am concerned that thinking of the church as a corporation may tend to lead us away from walking by faith.

This could be elaborated on — and I’d like to see a biblical case made for why we should think of the church in terms of a corporation — but I wanted to get the bare thought written down as a first step.
