Leadership

God has revealed in His Word how His church is to be governed.  In keeping with His Word, the congregation has identified elders and deacons who are gifted by God to do His work here on earth. (1 Tim. 3, Titus 1, 1 Peter 5 & Acts 6)

They are servant leaders who devote themselves to helping the congregation to know and stay true to the will of the Father in living, worshipping and building His kingdom through the church.
