The church is the body of Christ and He is its only head (Ephesians 1:22-23, 4:4). Christ has all authority (Matthew 28:18, Colossians 1:18) and we take all our instructions from Him. The Bible does not give instructions for any earthly headquarters so we are not governed by any other individual, group, or council outside of this congregation of the Lord's church.
The Bible states that elders are to be appointed in every church (Acts 14:23; Titus 1:5) to act as local guides for that congregation. Our elders believe in the example of servant leadership set forth by Jesus and they put this belief into action in their roles as shepherds of this church. They pray for the members of the church, are interested in our lives, and make sure we are fed the Word of God in times of worship and in our Bible classes. They lead us in reaching out to each other, our community, and the world. We are thankful for these men and they are ready to help you in any way they can.
If you would like to contact the elders collectively, please email them at: email@example.com
The Bible also gives us the example of the church assigning deacons to act as servants to facilitate congregational needs (Acts 6:1-6, I Timothy 3:8-13). Our deacons are hard-working men who help every day in so many ways and we are thankful for their devotion to showing Christ's example of servanthood in all they do.
Preachers have the responsibility to preach the Word, serve as evangelists, and to be ministers (2 Timothy 4:1-5). The Westpark church of Christ is blessed to have thorough, consistent, and accurate sermons provided to us by our minister. We hope you will visit to hear the enriching lessons provided to us from God's Word!
