F-1.02 Jesus Christ is Head of the Church

F-1.0201 The Authority of Christ
Almighty God, who raised Jesus Christ from the dead and set him above all rule and authority, has given to him all power in heaven and on earth, not only in this age but also in the age to come. a) God has put all things under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and has made Christ head of the Church, which is his body. b) The Church's life and mission are a joyful participation in Christ's ongoing life and work.

F.1.0202 Christ Calls and Equips the Church
Christ calls the Church into being, giving it all that is necessary for its mission in the world, for its sanctification, and for its service to God. Christ is present  with the Church in both Spirit and Word. Christ alone rules, calls, teaches, and uses the Church as he wills.

The Session is responsible for the mission and government of the church.

We are excited to welcome our new interim pastor, Scott Huie.  He served the past 22 years as a part-time youth pastor in two churches outside Atlanta and is now excited to have his first ordained call leading a church.  Scott is also President of the H20 Artist Agency, an entertainment agency representing such contemporary Christian artists as Newsboys, Peter Furler, Ryan Stevenson, Rush of Fools, Seventh Day Slumber, and the Imperials.  He is a recent transplant to Nashville, and a graduate of Davidson College and Columbia Theological Seminary.  He has two usually awesome children, Madison, 22 and Jackson, 18, and together they like to ride bikes, play all sports, watch movies, go on church retreats, and cruise down the highway in a convertible listening to great music.  Scott himself is passionate about people, especially teenagers, and is humbled by the special privilege it is to preach to God's people. "Right away I sensed that God was working in this church and this community, he said.  "I absolutely love being here and look forward to reaching out to the neighborhood to share the good news of God's love as well as continue the tradition of vibrant worship at Emmanuel."
