What We Believe

cHURCH GOVERNment

The Church of Jesus Christ is to be humbly governed by Elders. 'Presbyterian' comes from the Greek word 'presbuteros', which is translated in Scripture as 'elder'. The apostle Paul appointed Elders in each local church he planted (Acts 14:23). God calls Elders to the work of oversight (Acts 20:28), equipping them to shepherd God's people through instruction in His Word, encouragement, and discipline. Through the Elders' faithful pastoring, God nurtures and leads His local church into more mature worship, selfless work, and effective witness.
