Leaders at Redemption Church

Redemption Church is an independent non-denominational fellowship of believers which is locally governed by the Holy Spirit through the two main offices of leadership for the local church which God approves & instructs in His Word – elders and deacons.

An elder is a God-appointed spiritual leader who has been called to protect, feed, lead, and care for the flock of God (Acts 20:26-31; 1 Timothy 3:2; 5:17; James 5:14).  In our fellowship, we use the term “elder” interchangeably with “pastor” or “pastor-elder”.

 

 


 

A deacon is a God-appointed spiritual leader who has been called to oversee the practical needs within the local church (Acts 6:1-7).

Both of these offices of church leadership require that men are Biblically qualified (1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:6-9; 1 Peter 5:1-3).
