The Head of the Church
We believe in full that Jesus Christ is the head of the church. Kingdom Chapel seeks to be a church in submission to Him and His authority as He is the ultimate and Chief Shepherd over us. Here at Kingdom Chapel, we also believe that under Christ, are what the Bible calls "under-shepherds" these are qualified men set apart to govern the affairs of His church and oversee the flock of God. These men the Bible also calls "Elders" or "Overseers" they are the only pastors of the church.
At Kingdom Chapel the flock is shepherded by these men, as a shared leadership and authority over the flock of God. We believe in a multiplicity of leadership, as we believe this is the example given to us from Scripture for a New Testament church. This is one of only two offices described for us in Scripture as it pertains to the church. We do not affirm women as elders or pastors here at Kingdom Chapel, nor do we affirm any role other than those in the office of elder as being a "Pastor" as such is not the biblical model laid out for us in Scripture.
Deacons are the second office within the local church, however are entirely different then that of the office of Elder. Deacons, are also qualified persons, however the text allow for both male or female, in this office. Deacons are assistants to the elders and serve the church in a variety of ways. This office is a non-teaching role, and is not entrusted with shepherding the flock with any authority in the church.
Staff & Teams
Beyond this, Kingdom Chapel has entrusted roles and responsibilities to assist in the carrying out of ministry to various staff and teams to help the body as a whole, gifted in different ways by Christ, to be unified in the mission and work Jesus has tasked us with. If you have any further question on our leadership here at Kingdom Chapel please feel free to reach out to email@example.com and one of our elders will be in touch.
