Authority and Importance in the Church

The proper order of teaching authority and importance in the church.

  1. The infallible canon of Scripture, qualitatively distinct from all other sources and authorities.
  2. The ministerial service of creeds and confessions under Scripture’s magisterial norm.
  3. The contemporary proclamation of God’s sacramental Word.
  4. Long-standing interpretations in the Christian tradition.
  5. The particular nuances of individual theologians.
