As a presbyterian church, we believe that the responsibility for church leadership should be:
Service-oriented: Jesus gives leaders to his church to serve after the pattern that he established, “not to be served but to serve.”
Shared: Our pastors and staff work together with our elders and deacons for the good of our congregation and community.
Connectional: We are part of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian (ARP) denomination and work together with sister churches in our presbytery and denomination to minister the gospel in our region, country and world.
Accountable: Since all Christians, including leaders, continue to struggle with sin as individuals and groups, God calls us to live in accountable relationships with one another. Members and officers of our church are accountable to our elders, as well as to the oversight of our local presbytery.
