The ‘ordering authority’ — the authority to conduct public worship in an orderly way— is God’s power at work in the gospel itself. 'The word of the cross is the power of God' (1 Cor18, 24).

Pastors and presidents properly assert their spiritual authority in the church by preaching and teaching the gospel. The church has the authority to carry out Christ’s commandments with respect to her mission. She is to do what Jesus says.

Where He has given only general commandments (worship on the Lord’s Day, for example), she is to settle any necessary details (times, location, and order of worship).

Power is an entity or individual’s ability to control or direct others, while authority is influence that is predicated on perceived legitimacy.

Max Weber studied power and authority, differentiating between the two concepts and formulating a system for classifying types of authority. What the creeds and confessions teach is called “the theological tradition,” or “the interpretative tradition,” or just “the tradition.” Evangelicals agree this codified body of prescribed doctrines is a subordinate authority.

This authority was confirmed in the times of the Apostles through the succession of bishops and the propagation of churches, as if it was settled in a heavenly manner in a kind of seat to which every believing and pious mind.

But the early church was unmistakably not militaristic. Early Christians were never fascinated with the power of the Roman military; rather, they clung to the rhythm of the cross, where evil is conquered not by swords and spears but by suffering and love.

In fact, the most quoted verse among early Christians was Jesus’s command that we should. the Greek word exousia (translated "authority" in Matt. 24, 27) is a noun that comes from the Greek verb exesti meaning it is right, lawful. "authority" is the power to command what is right and lawful.
