Jesus is the leader of the Church. Every organizational chart of every church needs to have Jesus at the top. He is the true Pastor and true Deacon of the Church. The Scriptures credit Jesus with being the One who builds, grows, shepherds, disciplines, and even closes local churches. In His love for the church, Jesus calls, gifts, and qualifies believers to serve under him as leaders in the local church. Today we consider the two Biblical offices of leadership - elders and deacons - what they are and who is to serve in this capacity.
