Meet Our Elders
Thru the study of the Bible, the Holy Inspired Word of Almighty God, the church is to appoint Elders to oversee the work of the church. They are the bishops of the congregation, the overseers.
“For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city as I commanded you; if a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of dissipation or insubordination. For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict” (Titus 1:5-9).
The elders are appointed by nomination of the church members. Elders must be the husband of one faithful wife and his children must also have been baptized for the remission of their sins. He must rule his own house well to take care of the church of God. Elders remain until death, resignation, or removed from position due to transgression of God’s Law.
