Jesus is the Head of the Church. He is her Chief Shepherd and supreme authority. In the wisdom of God He chose to establish local shepherds (we call them pastors or elders) to serve Him in the local gatherings of His people.  These men are called to teach the Word, protect the doctrine of the church, provide care for the flock, and equip the church for the work of ministry.

Our Deacons:

The Lord also established servants in each local church to minister to the physical and practical needs of the congregation. These men are called deacons, and we set them apart to care for the practical needs of the body at Trinity.
