Jesus Christ is the head of the church. We believe that ‘all power in heaven and earth is given to Jesus Christ by Almighty God, who raised Christ from the dead and set him above all rule and authority, all power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. God has put all things under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and has made Christ Head of the Church, which is his body.” (G1.0100a)
And so we strive to follow Jesus with all that we do and with all that we are. We are guided in this by our Elders and deacons.
