Eldership. A fundamental blessing of being a member of a church is to have the oversight of Christ-appointed elders. Elders must be respected as under-Shepherd of Christ (1 Pet 5:4) and honoured with obedience so long as they do not require anything contrary to the Word of God. “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you” (Heb 13:17).
