The Authority of the Holy Spirit At this point, it should be noted that the holiness of the church is ultimately a matter of authority. The final authority as far as the ontology of the church is concerned is God in his Trinitarian existence. The authority of God, however, is manifested in Christ42 because the Gospel of Christ is the very aspect that drives the church to its mission and also offers a solid basis, as well as a justification, for its existence. At the same time, the authority of God that is manifested in Christ finds its practical application in the life and mission43 of the church through the Holy Spirit.
43 It is vital to notice that the eyewitnesses of this event were the apostles. For them, the resurrection of Christ was an unmediated historical event that cannot be repeated in any way in later generations. Thus, what they saw as living reality can be interpreted and preserved only by later Christians. It may be equally true that Christ’s resurrection must be a living reality for all Christians through the ages but it was unique for the apostles from the standpoint of history, as an event that was unfolded before their very eyes.
Thus the apostolic succession first of all pertains to the whole church in all her members. It manifests itself in manifold ways throughout the centuries and in all countries in the continuous process of performing and receiving the sacrament of baptism, in faith and in obedience to the apostolic testimony, in the community of worship and in the Lord’s Supper, in the transmission of the apostolic testimony in the congregations, in missionary proclamation to the world, in the fellowship and unity with the churches of the whole world.
