Two Church Officers: Pastors and Deacons
“Paul and Timothy, the servants
of Jesus Christ, to all the saints
in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi,
with the bishops and deacons.”
“The officers in a local New Testament
church are pastors and deacons (Phil. 1:1).
The same office is variously called
bishop, elder or pastor.”
Baptist polity through the years has affirmed two scriptural officers of a New Testament church, pastor and deacon. Baptists believe the Bible teaches that all Christians are called to serve and minister to others in Christ’s name, but some are called and gifted by God to function in specific roles of ministry, such as pastors and deacons.
