The Mystical Body of Christ: the Church

“And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.” -Matthew 16:18-19


“And he hath subjected all things under his feet, and hath made him head over all the church, which is his body, and the fulness of him who is filled all in all.” -Ephesians 1:22-23


“Christ is the head of the church. He is the saviour of his body. Therefore…the church is subject to Christ.” -Ephesians 5:23-24
