Authority in the Church — Part Two

From Series: Authority in the Church

Colossians 1:18  (ID: 1144)

In our lives or churches, if the Bible’s authority is replaced with tradition or human wisdom, the world will not see Christ’s true character. The essence of authority is seen in the person of Jesus as He taught, performed miracles, and forgave sins. To rightly glorify Jesus and display His lordship to the world, Alistair Begg challenges us to submit to Christ by living under His control, obeying His direction, and performing His works.


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.
