RADIO PROGRAM No. 191 - What Is the Purpose of Church?

QUESTIONER: The concept of church has come to mean many different things to many different people. In some ways it seems easier to ask the question, What is the purpose of church? than it is to give the answer. How would you define the purpose of church?

SPEAKER: I'd say a basic purpose of church is to help the individual grow, help him become a better person, help him discover who he really is. In other words, help him discover what it really means to be the son of God.
