The Scriptures show that the elders serve by leading and that their responsibility involves the spiritual oversight of the congregation.
The elders' primary responsibilities include:
DISCIPLE - Through faithful Biblical teaching, and as increasingly obedient examples, the pastoral team will lovingly care for the church body in a concern for their individual spiritual growth and wellbeing, helping them to grow and abide in the Lord Jesus Christ (I Pet 5:2, Jn 15:4,5)
DOCTRINE - Ensuring that the doctrine of the church is biblical; all doctrinal issues in the church will be settled by the Board of Elders
DIRECTION - Ensuring that the direction of the church is consistent with the Canyon Bible Church mission statement
DISCIPLINE - Administering in love and humility the process of church discipline as outlined in Matthew 18:15-20; Galatians 6:1-4; Titus 3:10; 2 Thessalonians 3:14-15; 1 Timothy 5:17-25; 1 Corinthians 5; 2 Corinthians 2:5-11, and Romans 16:17
