Why Does the Church Exist?

quotes

“Why did God create and choose this institution called ‘church’?  What is this gift that God has given us, and how does it impact our lives?  The church is one of the few organizations in the world that does not exist for the benefit of its members.  The church exists because God in his infinite wisdom and infinite mercy, chose the church as his instrument to make known his manifold wisdom in the world.”

Ed Stetzer and David Putman, Breaking the Missional Code: Your Chuch Can Become a Missionary in Your Community (Nashville: Broadman and Holman Publishers, 2006), 200.
