New Life Christian Church Leadership
We believe that the bible teaches that Christ is the head of the church and its chief Shepherd. We believe that Christ has given pastors (also known as elders or overseers) to lead, teach, guard, and equip the saints for the work of the ministry. We believe that each local church is to have biblically qualified leaders that have been recognized and affirmed by that congegation. These are men who have are exemplary in character, hold firm to biblical truth, and are comptent in teaching the scriptures.
