This Ministry serves as advisors to the Pastor in the welfare of the Church; assists in organizing Church activities and the ordinance of baptism; and provides leadership for other Church ministries. Deacons provide leadership and serve the Church family by visiting the sick, caring for members of the Church and the community.
Each Deacon must have a rapport with God; be convicted, redeemed, spirit filled, and baptized by immersion. He must also be conversant with the Holy Bible and be a sincere worshipper with an active prayer life. The Deacon must set examples of Christian living.
Procedure for becoming a Deacon:
New members are selected by a committee of the Deacon Ministry and are voted upon by the Church. In addition to the Pastor and Elders, Deacons are the only ordained members of the Church.
