This church recognizes Christ as its Head and the Scriptures as its only authority (Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22-23; 4:15; 2 Timothy 3:16). Under that authority, the oversight of this church is vested in a body of Elders who operate in concert with the Deacons and the Congregation. The primary officers of the Church are the Elders and Deacons.
