Always Reforming - Church Government

Always Reforming - Church Government

semper reformanda - "Always reforming" is a slogan of the Reformation and a call for the church to always be examining itself—its doctrine, its structure—in light of what God has revealed in His Word. During this short study we will explore the biblical evidence for a plurality of elders in church leadership while also examining their responsiblities, qualifications, and their relationship to the congregation, deacons, and the pastor. In addition, we will be looking at privileges and responsibilities of deacons and the church membership in the life of a New Testament church.
