The purpose of both a thesis statement and a topic sentence is to state the main point, but the topic sentence is the main point of a single paragraph while the thesis statement states the point of a multi-paragraph piece of writing. Every essay should have one thesis statement, and every paragraph within that essay should generally have its own topic sentence that supports the thesis.
