The Mystery of our Faith

Christ was
Revealed in a human body
Vindicated by the Spirit
Seen by angels
Announced to the nations
Believed in throughout the world
Taken to heaven in glory.

Now He is
Far above any ruler or authority or
Power or leader or anything else—
Not only in this world
But also in the world to come.
God has put all things
Under the authority of Christ and
Has made Him head over all things
For the benefit of the church.

And the church is His body;
It is made full and complete by Christ,
Who fills all things everywhere
With Himself.

The Church is part of God’s mystery
Not a building in your neighborhood;
Not a denomination.
The living body of Jesus,
In whom are hidden all the
Treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

God’s purpose in all this
Was to use the church
To display His wisdom
In its rich variety
To all the unseen rulers and authorities
In the heavenly places.
This was His eternal plan
Which He carried out
Through Christ Jesus our Lord.

The church is the household of God.
And the church is His body;
It is made full and complete by Christ,
Who fills all things everywhere with Himself.

This is the church of the living God,
Which is the pillar and foundation of the truth.
God Is building His church, and
The Gates of Hell
Will never overpower it.
