The Lordship of Christ

We believe, teach and practise that Jesus Christ is Lord of everything, including our own lives. This means that we seek to conform our lives, our outlook and our attitudes to what He says.

He is the risen Lord

We believe that Jesus Christ is alive, that He was raised from the dead after dying on the cross, and that now He sits beside God the Father in heaven. We believe that all authority in heaven and earth have been given to Him. So as believers, who are very grateful to be included in His family, we seek to put Him first in our thinking, choices and actions.

He is Lord of our lives

The Lordship of Christ means that He rules over everything. We trust His goodness, mercy, faithfulness, wisdom and authority. We seek to accept His ways, even if it means changing our own ways. We believe that when we put our lives into His care and charge, we are taking part in His great plan for the whole world, to bring glory to Him – which means showing the world what He is really like.

We believe we can all help each other with this. We pray for each other and try to encourage each other to choose to do things God’s way, even when it seems difficult. This is because we have the highest respect for the Lord Jesus Christ.

He is the Lord of all

We believe that ultimately, everything and everyone will understand the authority of Christ. We believe that now, as part of the Church, every believer can be a demonstration of what it’s like to live under His Lordship, and we believe that this is a wonderful example to people.

Acts 20:24

‘Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess the Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.’
Philippians 2:9-11
