The Salvation of God IS the Lordship of Christ

"To be the church is to be a learning community that seeks together in faith to know Jesus, to grow together in love for Jesus and to align our lives, mission and way of being in the world to the in-breaking of the reign of Christ. The salvation of God is found specifically as the one and the many come under the reign of Christ and participate in this reign. Thus there is no conceivable split between knowing Jesus as “Savior” and knowing him as “Lord.” Indeed, the salvation of God is specifically the lordship of Christ."
