Our Leadership

Ruling Elders are men called by Christ to govern the church along with the minister, to watch over the people, nourish and guard the children of the covenant, pray for and with the people and to prevent corruption of doctrine or morals.

Deacons are men called by Christ to show forth the compassion of Christ in the ministry of mercy toward the saints and strengthen on behalf of the church.
