Titus 1:5-9 — This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you—if anyone is above reproach, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination. For an overseer, as God's steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.
In accordance with the Pastoral Epistles and other important church governance passages from Scripture, Downtown Baptist is an elder-led church. We are a new church plant in earnest prayer for the Lord to raise up godly men and women to lead and disciple the next generation of church leaders and missionaries.
Help us proclaim the glory of Christ!
