Calvary Baptist Church seeks to follow the pattern and the instruction of the apostles in the New Testament that each local church ought to be led by a plurality of qualified and gifted men referred to in Scripture as elders, overseers, or pastors, and served by qualified and gifted men referred to in Scripture as deacons. (Acts 14:23; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4)  For a detailed explanation of the Scriptures teaching on the offices of elder and deacon please consider reading Alexander Strauch’s books, “Biblical Eldership,” and “Paul’s Vision for the Deacons.”

Acts20:28 Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. 

1 Peter 5:1-4 - [1] So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: [2] shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; [3] not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. [4] And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.
