Calvin on ‘what is church’?

Quote from Institutes 4.1.9.

“Wherever we see the word of God sincerely preached and heard, wherever we see the sacraments administered according to the institution of Christ, there we cannot have any doubt that the church of God has some existence, since his  promise cannot fail ‘Where two of three are gathered together  in my name, there am I in the midst of them’.”
