WHAT IS AN ELDER?
The elders are responsible for the care and oversight of the church. From the New Testament we see this responsibility includes: being able to teach the Word (1 Timothy 3:2, 1 Tim 4:13), leading the church (1 Tim 5:17), the exhortation and admonishment of believers in sound doctrine (2 Tim 4:2, Tit 1:9), the shepherding and protection of the church against false teaching (Acts 20: 28-31), visiting and praying for the sick (James 5:14), supporting the weak (Acts 20:34) judgment of doctrinal issues (Acts 15:5- 19), and being examples to the flock (1Pet 5:3).
