Elders

We believe the Bible sets forth two offices for church leadership: elders and deacons. The Bible teaches that elders must be men and must be able to teach (1 Tim. 3:1-12, Ti. 1:5-9). Our congregation has entrusted these men to lead, guard the doctrine and life of, and be examples to our church as “undershepherds” (1 Pt. 5:1-4, Heb. 13:7-9, 17).
