The Leadership of the Church

The New Testament pattern of leadership is presented in many passages of Scripture, for example, Philippians 1:1:


Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons


Every Christian is a saint, or a sanctified one (Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:2).

Bishops (also known as Elders, 1 Peter 5:1) and Deacons (1 Timothy 3:8) are two classification of servants within the body of Christ, the Church.

The Elders at the Fort Payne church of Christ are responsible for the oversight of the congregation.  Get to know them here.

The Deacons at the Fort Payne church of Christ are special servants of the congregation and the Eldership.  Get to know our Deacons.
