*Note: Even though we currently have one elder, our desire and aim is to have a plurality of elders which we believe is ideal. The below statement is taken from “Article VII – CHURCH OFFICERS: Section 2 – Elders:” from our Constitution:
A. PLURALITY AND PARITY – The scriptures indicate that normally there should be a plurality of Elders in the local church (Acts 20:17; Phil 1:1). These men are called “Bishops” (meaning overseer) because they have oversight of the assembly (Accts 20:28; 1 Pet. 5:2; Heb 13:17). They are called the “Pastor-teachers” given to the church “for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering unto the building up on the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:11-12; Acts 20:28). There is parity (equality) among the Elders, each bearing authority in the deliberations and decisions of the Board of Elders. Thus the plurality and parity of the Elders guard the flock from the weakness of rule by one man and use the collective wisdom of several godly men to rule the flock of God as one Board.
We pray God raises up men in our church for this to become a reality.
