Pastors/ Elders

elders cropped

The ultimate authority in the local church is Jesus Christ Himself. He is the head of the church, which is His body and His bride.

The Bible also teaches that each local church should be led by a plurality of pastors/ elders (biblically, these terms refer to the same leadership role in the church), who are responsible to “shepherd the flock of God,” to set a good example for the church, to preach and teach the Bible, and to guard the church against false teaching.
