Kingdom Order in Church Government
This exciting study outlines God's structure and order for church government that was first instituted in His Torah through the prophet Moses and the elders of Israel. It graphically displays how that same governing structure was then established within Israel's judicial court and military systems and is the standard structure that governs our modern-day courts and military complex. It also reveals how that same order of ecclesiastical governance was used by the elders and apostles to oversee the early church that was spreading throughout the nations.
This study addresses the proper role and function of church apostles, overseers (bishops), elders, and deacons within the governmental structure of the local church. It also explains how the fivefold ministers of Ephesians 4:11 work together with governing elders and overseers to equip God's people for the work of the ministry.
