The fundamental purpose of the church

Jared Wilson in The Story of Everything”:

The importance of the church — and the fundamental purpose of the church — is to keep pointing away from the world for the hope of the world. While everyone else points to government, family, good deeds, and whatever else as The Secret, the church keeps pointing to the alien, heavenly power of grace as the hope for our problems and for our false hopes.
