Deacons

What is a Deacon?

“The office of Deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, concern for needs, and of serving others. Therefore, the first duty of the Deacon is sympathy and service….” (EPC Book of Order, 10.7)

“According to Scripture, those who bear this office should exhibit those spiritual qualities of the Christian, and should be earnest and wholehearted followers of Christ. They should be persons who are steady and reliable, well thought of by all. They should not be new in the faith and should be tested for faithfulness before election.” Please study 1 Tim 3:1-16, Acts 20:28, John 21:16, 1 Pet 5:2-4 in this regard.
