We have two kind of articles : definite article (the), and indefinite article (a,an) So when we say i want an apple it means generally i want an apple doesn’t matter if it is the red one or blue, but when ever we say i want the apple it means i want that specific apple.

English Grammar in Use by Murphy is well-known. A paper copy is affordable and a google search will find a PDF. See unit 74 "The 2 (school / the school)." Briefly, "church" and "school" do not refer to specific locations, but "the church" and "the school" refer to specific buildings.
