Leadership

Grace Bible Church follows the New Testament example of two leadership positions, elders and deacons, both under the headship of Jesus Christ (Col 1:17-18). A plurality of elders (pastors) share equally the responsibility and authority to undershepherd, adminster, and oversee all affairs of this church. Deacons primarily minister to the physical needs of the church, both corporately and individually. Elders and deacons are to be men called of God who are qualified according to Biblical standards (1 Tim. 3:1-13; Tit. 1:6-9; 1 Pet. 5:2-3) and have accepted the Grace Bible Church Statement of Faith. Each serves as long as he remains Biblically qualified, available, and desires.
