If Jesus is not the focus of your church, then it is not part of the real church

The Bible says that Jesus is the head of the church:

And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. (Colossians 1:18 NIV)

If Jesus does not have supremacy in your church then it is a fake church. Some churches do not even worship Jesus at all. Some churches only preach about their own good works, thus worshipping themselves instead of God. We can do no good works apart from Jesus Christ. Without Him all of our good works are just selfish works done to make ourselves look good when others are watching us. But we can learn from His example once we have repented and been forgiven of our sins. For Jesus, Who is God, humbled Himself to serve others in the most humiliating ways. Likewise, if we are followers of Christ we should humble ourselves and give up our pride to serve others too. But we cannot do this on our own power. We can only do good through the power that God provides through the blood of Christ. Therefore any church that never mentions the blood of Christ or the crucifixion is not a true church.
