The series now moves on to a group of talks which cover the whole subject of leadership in the church and structures of authority. This first study therefore defines the Bible’s teaching concerning this, and the issue of just how a church ought to be governed is clearly laid out. Elders, presbyters, shepherds, pastors and bishops are all clearly defined and explained! As you will see it’s all so simple, yet has been made so very complicated by wrong teachings accepted by all too many believers. (We refer you to the Traditions Series.) This subject is absolutely fundamental to the life of every church, and where churches get this wrong so much else goes awry too.
