1.  Over the church

Ephesians 5:23   For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is head of the  
Church: and is Savior of the body.

Colossians 2:19   And he is head of the body, the Church: who is the beginning, the
firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

When a person is born-again they automatically become a member of The Church, the
body of Christ; in which the Lord Jesus Christ is Lord and Head of.

The Church is not a building or any certain denomination, but is all born again believers,
from the day of Pentecost to the 2nd. coming of Jesus Christ. It is the body of Christ, of
which he is head ( Ephesians 1:22-23 ). As such, the church is a temple for the habitation
of the Holy Spirit ( Ephesians 2:21-23 ) and is espoused, as a chaste virgin to Christ ( 2 Corinthians 11:2-4 ) and will be translated to meet the Lord in the air at his 2nd. coming
( 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 ).

  * Each person is to hold to the Head, Jesus Christ and be subject to Him.

-- Simple English
Colossians 2:19  He is not holding onto the Head.  The whole body grows the way God made it grow, held together by its joints and ligaments, getting its support from the Head.

  * The Church meets together locally, under various names and denominations, for the
     purpose of worship, praise, fellowship, and the teaching and preaching of Godís
     Word: with its governing body of Pastors, Elders, Deacons, etc.

    2.  Over Authorities and Powers

Matthew 28:18-20   And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is
given unto me in heaven and in earth.

1 Peter 3:22   Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and
authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

Revelation 1:18   I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.  

Colossians 2:15   Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
