1 Timothy 3:8-10
- “Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain.”“They must keep hold of deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience.”
“They must first be tested, and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.”
- The mission of the Deacons Ministry is to serve Christ by serving His people and to provide sound leadership and instruction by working with God’s under-shepherd, the Pastor, as laid out by the Holy Scriptures. This mission will be carried out in a manner consistent with the goal of spiritual growth. The Deacons are to demonstrate in their daily lifestyle the character of Christ and His teachings by staying grounded in the Spirit of God, his presence, power, and authority.
