The Role of Deacons

Selected Scriptures  (ID: 1154)

Life in the local church requires us to understand the leadership structure God has provided for our good. The office of deacon was established in the New Testament church as a practical ministry of mercy. As Alistair Begg explains, God’s appointment of this office is a clear reminder that He is concerned with the poor and needy. The deacon should be viewed as an extension of the eldership, who in turn are subject to God and His Word.
