“And hath put all things under His feet and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church,” Ephesians 1:22.
“Even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the savior of the body,” Ephesians 5:23.
When Christ died, was buried, then arose, He fulfilled the Law and took away the keys of sin and death from Satan (Revelation 1:18). Then through the Spirit and Apostles in Acts 2, the Church was established in Jerusalem, with Christ as the foundation (“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ,” 1 Corinthians 3:11) and head. Therefore, Christ is the Head of His Church (Ephesians 1:22)! He alone laid the foundation (1 Corinthians 3:11). He alone has received all authority in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18-20), and Christ alone is preeminent in all things (Colossians 1:18). Today there is a pre-denominational religious group on earth that Christ established. He alone is the head of this church which is His Body (Col. 1:18); and His headquarters is where the Head of the body is, in heaven! Scriptures reveal that the Father promised Jesus the throne of David (Luke 1:31-33), and He was raised to sit upon His throne (Acts 2:29-31). When Jesus sat down on the right hand of God (Heb. 3:1; 10:11-12), He sat down on His throne in heaven (Heb. 8:1; Rev. 3:21), where He receives as King over His kingdom, dominion and glory (Dan. 7:13- 14; 1 Pet. 1:21; 3:22). Today, Jesus rules His Church as Head from His headquarters in Heaven. We at the Brown Trail church of Christ recognize Christ as our head, who is in heaven, and our creed is the New Testament and none other. Please feel free to contact one of the elders or deacons here at Brown Trail if you have any questions about these doctrines.
