"Jesus Christ is Lord" has been and continues to be the conviction of the Christian. It is this conviction that has enabled men and women of every century, including our own, to face persecution and death rather than renounce the faith of Jesus Christ. This earliest and simplest of Christian confessions focuses attention upon the central and unique place that Jesus Christ holds within the Christian faith as being the sum and substance of its faith and message.
Robert M. Norris is pastor of Fourth Presbyterian Church (Bethesda, Maryland).
