Dominus (Deus) praesertim/maxime/potissime


Explanation:
Dear Patrick,

You can use either Dominus or Deus. Dominus is better though, if this is for Catholic context.

Preeminently, mainly, principally can be translated as above, these are all synonims.

Hope it helps :)

Christus praesertim/potissime/maxime


Explanation:
Of course you should use Christus instead of Dominus, but it's all the same at least in catholic church (uno e trino...)

Christus regnat


Explanation:
I know it is not a literal translation but your request reminded me of the hymn I used to sing in Latin when a kid (yes, mass was still in Latin then)
Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat (Christ wins, Christ reigns, Christ ... ehm ... stronger than reigns...)

See this article in the Catholic encyclopedia
http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/01097a.htm

regards
