I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life

The Christian faith is one of particularity, distinctiveness, and exclusivity. Though we welcome all people, we also make clear distinction between truth and error. This is so because of her Lord, the Head of the Church. Jesus Christ is this Head, the only one. Neither the pope nor a bishop, neither a pastor or even a President, is the Head of Christ’s Bride. Only the very Son of God has this position, the same one who now sits at the right hand of God the Father (Colossians 3:1; Hebrews 10:12; 1 Peter 3:22).

This is He of whom Scripture says, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight — if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard (Colossians 1:14-23).

This Jesus Christ, the Church’s Head, is the Only Way to eternal life. None other has right to this claim. There is salvation in none other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12). This has been the proclamation of the Christian Church throughout the ages, and it will continue to be so. Her message is Christ crucified and this is the content of her preaching. In both her speaking and in her doing, Christ receives all glory, honor, and praise…
