Supremacy of Christ

<<superiority of Christ>>

The supremacy of Christ is affirming that Jesus is God and has the ultimate power, authority and importance. “For in Christ all the fullness of God lives in bodily form…The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word” (Col 2:9; Heb 1:3). As part of the Godhead (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) He created all things, rules over creation, is head of the church, “in everything” He has ultimate authority and is “the image of the invisible God” (Col 1:15-23). He is supreme. There is no rivalary between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Bible says we are to love Him with our total being and this is demonstrated by our obedience to Him (Mk 12:30; Jn 14:15).

In a coming time every knee will bow and acknowledge Christ (Phil 2:9-11).
