LEADERSHIP

God is a God of order

We believe the Bible allows for the autonomy of each local church, and that the leadership structure for the local church is that of elder-led congregationalism. The entire church body has the final authority under God’s Word in matters of doctrine and discipline, yet the congregation practices that authority under the willing submission to elder-leadership. The Bible defines deacons as servants in the church.


And when they had appointed elders for them in every church, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed. (Acts 14:23)

OUR ELDERS (Pastors)

The Bible uses the terms elders, pastors and overseers synonymously. The eldership of a church is charged with caring for the spiritual needs of the church body. Elders, therefore, are the primary teachers in the church and are charged with guarding the doctrine of the church. The Bible calls for a plurality of elders and the Biblical qualifications for elders a laid out in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.
