Church Elders

Elders:

The Bible spells out 5 duties and obligations of Elders in the Church:

  1. The elders help to settle disputes in the Church.
  2. They pray for the sick.
  3. They are to watch out for the church in humility.
  4. They are to watch out for the spiritual life of the flock.
  5. They are to spend their time in prayer and teaching the word.

Ruling Elders serving in a church council have “responsibility for the leadership, guidance, and government of that portion of the church that is under their jurisdiction,” so that all things will result in “the peace, purity, unity, and progress of the church under the will of Christ.
