Christ has ordained and clearly established how His church is to be led. The Scripture is clear that there are two ordained offices in the church, that of pastor/elders and that of deacons. The Scripture teaches that both of these offices are exclusively limited to men who are Biblically qualified according to 1 Timothy 3:1-13, Titus 1:5-9 and Acts 6:1-7.

The calling of the elder/pastor is to give himself to prayer and the Word (Acts 6:4). He is to be fervent in prayer and his study of the Word of God that he might rightly divide the Word and preach the Word in season and out of season (2 Timothy 2:15 and 4:1-5). He is to equip the saints for the work of ministry, warn them of error and falsehood, and edify the body of Christ in love (Acts 20:26-31, Ephesians 4:11-16).

The calling of the deacon is to serve the needs of the body of Christ. They are to minister to the various needs of God’s people and in so doing, relieve the pastor of being overloaded that he might give himself to his primary ministry of prayer and the Word. Deacons are servants of the Lord’s church and as such are to be examples for others to emulate and follow. (Acts 6:1-7, 1 Timothy 3:8-13).

In addition to this, Christ has also given to the church teachers (Ephesians 4:11-16, Titus 2:1-8, James 3:1) . Teachers can be men or women who have shown themselves examples of Christ in word and faith and are gifted to teach, however, Scripture teaches that women are to teach only other women and children. (1 Corinthians 11:1-3, 14:34-38, Titus 2:3-5, 1 Timothy 2:11-15).
