Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the
evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service,
so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith
and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole
measure of the fullness of Christ.
At Faith Community Christian Church, our pastors act as leading
elders of the community. We have called them from all other work and support
them so that they might exercise their God-given roles as shepherds by focusing
on the disciplines of prayer, the study and teaching of Scripture and spiritual
counsel. We provide mutual accountability for them and keep them in our prayers.
