Anatomy of the Church

Shepherds, Servants, and Saints

The New Testament does not tell us every little detail we would like to know about how each local church should be led and organized. Because of that, churches are and have been structured in countless ways. However, the New Testament does tell us many very meaningful things about the leadership of the New Testament church, and we would do well to listen! In this series, we will examine how we can best honor Jesus our Savior by seeing how our Chief Shepherd has determined His church be led.
