At The Vine Community Church, we believe the Bible teaches that each local church should be governed by a plurality of elders.
An elder is a man who (i) meets the qualifications in 1 Timothy 3:1-7
and Titus 1:6-9,
(ii) is recognized by his congregation as an elder, (iii) and leads the
congregation by teaching the Word (1 Tim. 3:2),
praying for the sheep (Jas. 5:14), and overseeing the affairs of the church (1 Pet. 5:2).
