Eldership

Those who serve the Lord's church as elders have a tremendous responsibility. When Paul spoke to the Ephesian elders he highlighted this very point saying “Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood” (Acts 20:28). The responsibility of shepherding the church of God is crucially important and certainly not a responsibility that is trusted to everyone. The Lord has made known who He trusts to oversee His church. Passages such as 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9 list the qualifications the Lord has given. This congregation is blessed with four godly men who serve as elders.
