Jesus Christ is the true Head of Redeemer Bible Church, just as He is of every other true church. The human leaders of this church serve under Christ’s authority, particularly as it is expressed in his Word.
Our church has appointed elders (pastors) who provide spiritual leadership at Redeemer. These are men who are examples for other Christians to follow, capable of teaching God’s Word, and can be trusted to wisely & humbly lead the church based on their observed character. Though we see elder leadership as the Biblical model for church government, we recognize full congregational participation as part of that Biblical model. Our elders take the congregation into consideration when making decisions and seek affirmation of those decisions by the congregation on important matters.
Our church has also appointed deacons, men of mature Christian character and good reputation whose role is to serve in various ways. The deacons provide leadership regarding the area of service, seeking to help the entire body be aware of ministry opportunities through the church.
