Session 1 lays the foundation for the other eight sessions to come. During this teaching, David Bryant introduces participants to what the “supremacy of Christ” actually means and how that relates to everything going on around us today.
He also uncovers what many believe to be the greatest crisis facing the Church today – the sobering shortfall among multitudes of Christians in their vision for the greatness and glory, the majesty and reign of God’s Son right now. It is a crisis about Christ himself. Yet, there is hope.
With the third theme of this session, David highlights an impending work of the Spirit in our generation using God’s Word to reintroduce God’s people to God’s Son for ALL he is. The prospects of a “Christ Awakening” leave participants with great expectations for what the Father is getting ready to do.
All three themes are revisited in greater detail throughout the next eight sessions.

Video 1:3 – Why is Christ’s supremacy beyond his centrality?
"Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: 'Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.'"
- Mark 8:34-35
