Our church is an elder-led congregational church. This means that we have a church led by godly men who have been appointed by the congregation to provide spiritual care and oversight for the church. The biblical term "elder" is used interchangeably with other words like pastor, overseer, and shepherd throughout Scripture. Though we call one of our elders a "pastor" because he is supported financially to fulfill his full-time role, ultimately all elders are pastors and all pastors are elders (Acts 20:12-3; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4).
We also believe that the Holy Spirit has given every believer spiritual gifts that are to be used for the common good. Therefore, we have many other people, both men and women, who are not elders but are still exercising their gifts of leadership in helpful ways to build up the church.
