Qualifications for an Elder - Part 1
Today we continue with our sermon series “God's Blueprint for the Church.” In our 10th message, Qualifications for an Elder - Part 1. We focus on God’s design and the different roles within the church and who is eligible and what qualifications are required for the different ministries and areas of the church.
The effectiveness of the church and the gospel of Jesus Christ demands that the men who lead and give it oversight be men of integrity. Human wisdom and worldly standards are not adequate; we must know what the New Testament requires in an elder.
As we saw in our last message, the fundamental principle in church government is that Christ is the Head of His church. He has ordained that His headship is exercised through spiritually mature elders who through example and servant-hood shepherd His flock.
This Sunday we want to examine carefully those 15 qualifications. The list is a challenging one - but one that each man at Midvalley should be striving to achieve. See you Sunday!
