Deacon Ministry

The Deacon Ministry at GloryLand Baptist Church

Acts 6:1-6 likely records the beginning of the role of deacons. They are to care for the physical needs of the congregation so that pastors can concentrate on spiritual needs. The deacons are not viewed as a governing body but as servant leaders.  Churches involve deacons in various ministries, such as visiting the sick, helping families in distress and providing relief to the poor.

“Paul and Timothy, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons. – Philippians 1:1

“The offices in a local New Testament church are pastors and deacons (Phil. 1:1).  The same office is variously called bishop, elder or pastor. Hershel H. Hobbs, The Baptist Faith and Message, p. 69.
