Deacons play an important biblical role in the ministry and function of the local church. Based on Acts 6 and 1 Timothy 3, deacons possess godly character and good reputations. They are spiritually mature believers who, above all else, are recognized by the local church as being filled with the Holy Spirit and wisdom. Deacons serve the congregation in a way that promotes unity and effective ministry.
The Evangelism and Church Health Team can assist churches by helping them understand biblical deacon ministry.
