...because God is a God of order, He has also given men to lead, rule, teach, and disciple
We believe that God has called all who believe in Christ into fellowship with one another. This fellowship is called the church or congregation of Christ. In it God has given gifts to believers by which they can help each other mature in the Christian faith. Furthermore, because God is a God of order, He has also given men to lead, rule, teach, and disciple the members of the church of Christ . These men the Bible calls pastors and elders or overseers. Christ also gave deacons to care for the temporal needs of the church.
