Church Authority

I believe that Jesus is the head of the church, which is His body (1 Cor. 12:27; Eph. 1:22-23). The church is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Jesus Christ as the chief cornerstone (Matt. 16:13-20; Eph. 2:19-20). In other words, Jesus is the ultimate authority over the church and He exercises His authority through the teachings of the apostles and prophets as preserved in Scripture, God’s Holy Word (Gal. 1:11; 2:6-14; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Tim. 1:13-14; Jude 3-4).
