Authority in the Church — Part One

From Series: Authority in the Church

Colossians 1:18  (ID: 1142)

The rejection of authority has led to confusion in contemporary society and compromise in the church. Many professing Christians doubt whether even God’s Word has jurisdiction over areas such as family life and morality. Yet if we say Christ is King and the Head over His body, then we must bow our intellects and desires to His lordship. Alistair Begg preaches that we proclaim Jesus best when we submit our hearts and minds to the authority of God’s written Word.


18And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.
