Deacons are to be men worth of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain.

  • Deacons will serve the church as a whole by helping with responsibilities that the main teachers cannot perform. They should fundamentally encourage and support the ministry of the church.
  • Men of dignity, reverent, they must be worthy of respect, serious minded, not treating serious things lightly (1 Timothy 3:8; Titus 2:2)
