What should the church look like?

Last week you guys learned about the church and today we are going to dive in deeper and look and what should the church look like and what is its purpose?
Which picture best represents what is the church?
Last week you guys covered:
What is the Church? when did it start? and What is its purpose?
Quickly review!
today I want to go a little deeper and cover the structure of the church the specific roles in the church? Such as the Members and Ministers (servants)
2. Deacon
3. Pastor
What is the church made up of?
First role and function:
God
My question for you guys is whom is the head of the church? Who is the boss?
The bible tells us in Jesus is the head of the body, the church!
Now who is directly under Jesus!
Pastor and Overseer
The bible calls men to be leaders and lead as servants:
It is a good thing to want to serve your church
Able to teach?
The job of a pastor is to come alongside the members to serve them and equip them to be better followers of Jesus. They are there to teach, offer guidance, support. They are to be good models of a servant of Jesus!
Elders and pastors are to “preach the word…reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching” (),
Deacons (Elders)
Serve as mentors who also come alongside like pastors to help mature and serve Christians.
What is the difference?
Pastors have a greater responsibility they oversee the church- they devote more to preaching the word!
Members
What is a member?
Members are Believers who are a part of the church.
CCOB
Other churches do (baptism and etc.)
We are train to be more like Christ!
Serve one another-we all have spiritual gifts!
Preach the gospel and fulfill the great commission!
Conclusion
Jesus is the head of the Church and leaders like Pastors and Elders are under him. Their job is to guide and lead the flock. Member we are called to be committed to a local fellowship and Serve one another and share the gospel with all!
