In accordance with biblical standards (Romans 16) deaconesses are to:
• Be a faithful servant of the Church,
• Be co-workers in the service of our Lord,
• Be supportive of the Church leadership, and
• Be wise about what is good but innocent about what is evil.
The duties of the Deacons are to assist the pastor and deacons in meeting the needs of the sick and shut-in members of the church; cooperate fully with the pastor and deacons in planning and implementing the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper; recommend for benevolence Church members in need; and assist the pastor and deacons in caring for the members.
