Elders, bishops, pastors and overseers are all words used to describe the same function in the local church. Pastors are men with their wives called by God, recognised by Apostolic ministry, qualified through Scripture to lead the church.
We believe in eldership-team led local churches. The Elders working together with the deacons, lead and care for the people within the local church. We believe that the eldership set the doctrine and direction of the church (giving vision) and are responsible for discipline in the church. The eldership team seeks to lead by example, modeling Christ to the rest of the Body.
