"Be on guard for youselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood." Acts 20:28
LBC acknowledges the Lord Jesus Chirst as its head who ultimately rules over the church. Christ mediates His ruling authority in the church through godly servant-leaders called Elders who are entrusted by the Holy Spirit with the responsibility of overseeing and shepherding the flock of God. The Elders are assisted by qualified individuals called Deacons who take care of the practical duties involved in caring for the flock, and thereby, free them to fulfill their pastoral priorities of prayer and the ministry of the Word.
