Elders

Each congregation of the Lord’s church is autonomous (self-governing).  We have no earthly headquarters, but get our instructions from the Bible only. Elders are men who meet the qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, and they are selected by members of the congregation to serve.

Duties of elders include:

1) Overseeing the work (Acts 20:28),

2) Feeding the flock (Acts 20:28),

3) Watching for the souls (Hebrews 13:17) and

4) Being examples to the flock (1 Peter 5:3).

The elders are held accountable to God to see that only the Bible is taught for doctrine. All other doctrine is false and will cause men to lose their souls.

Deacons

Deacons are men that meet the qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3 and who work under the direction of the eldership.
