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 DEACONS

Deacons are servant leaders in the church. The Bible charges deacons with caring for the physical and material needs of the church body. The qualifications for deacons are outlined in 1 Timothy 3:8-13.
