Our Ministry’s Vision Statement
The Deacons along with the Pastor are the scriptural officers of Faith Baptist Church.
We serve Christ’s church in practical and spiritual matters to ensure God is exalted and the church body is edified. The deacon body aims to be attentive to the various needs of the congregation and the proper functioning of church activities.
How we serve
Deacons zealously guard the spirit of unity within the Church, advise and confer with the Pastor in all matters pertaining to the welfare and the work of the church, serve with the Pastor and staff in performing pastoral ministries, assist the Pastor in the administration of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and assist in the maintenance and security of the church facilities. The Deacon Chairman acts as frontline prayer partner, encourager, adviser and congregational liaison to the Pastor.
Qualifications needed for someone to serve on our team
Deacons are born again believers in Christ, dedicated to the precepts of Christianity, and adhere to the scriptural qualifications of Acts 6:1-6 and 1 Timothy 3:8-13. They must be church members of a church similar to Faith Baptist Church for at least two years and members of Faith Baptist Church for at least six months prior to their election. Deacons are nominated by the congregation, examined by the deacon body, and subsequently elected by the congregation according to our by-laws.
