Four Sundays ago, we began a 10-part teaching series through the Core Values of Redemption Church. So far, we have looked at sufficiency of Scripture, the interpretation of Scripture, and the application of Scripture, making the connection between God’s glory and our sanctification. Then last Sunday, we looked at the priority of the local church, as one of the primary means through which God sanctifies believers. In this week’s study, we will begin looking more closely as to how the local church is to function, starting with God’s purpose for leadership within the church. We will be looking at the various offices of church leadership, their function, their purpose, along with the qualifications required for a man to be considered as a leader within the church.
