Deacon Board responds to the call of service in Acts 6:1-8 by proclaiming the gospel to believers and unbelievers, working to build and maintain Christian fellowship; administering the church ordinances; and caring for church members. As partners in Christian service with our pastor, we have a divine responsibility to use our God-given gifts to help build up God’s kingdom on earth. We strive to show leadership and love through the qualities of humility, honesty, boldness and charity.
“Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
I Timothy 3:8-13
