Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

God has provided our church with a group of leaders who prayerfully seek to discern God’s will for His people. Elders are elected and given the responsibility of leading our congregation spiritually and financially, nurturing faithful lives devoted to the Word of God. These are people who are dedicated disciples, strong in their faith and who possess a love for Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Also elected from the congregation are deacons. Our Deacons are called by God to care for the flock, reaching out to all those in need, including the sick, lost, friendless and poor. Deacons are people who lead faithful lives in devotion to Christ, possess sincere compassion and exercise sound judgement.
He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. Titus 1:9
