1Corr 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

Who is the temple here, the individual believer or the body of believers, the Church?

Yes, speaking of the body of believers, the church, which is made up of individual believers. I believe it is equally valid to apply to both individuals and the Church.

A consciousness of our powerlessness should cast us upon Him who has all power. Here then is where a vision and view of God's sovereignty helps, for it reveals His sufficiency and shows us our insufficiency.

Both of those would be used by the Apostle, and which one depends on the contex!

The “you” is plural, and Paul speaks of the community gathered in Christ’s name—not individuals—as the dwelling of the Holy Spirit.[Garland, D. E. (2003). 1 Corinthians (p. 120). Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic.]
