Duties of the Deacons

 

The New Testament sanctions these officers, who are elected from the church’s membership, as mutual helpers of the pastor; his assistants in carrying on the great work of the Master. They are to administer the church’s charities, caring for the poor, providing for all that pertains to the church’s welfare, “to serve tables.” All matters passed upon by the deacons, however, are submitted to the church for final decision.

 

The principal duties of the deacons consist in administering the temporal affairs of the church; these include the relief of the poor, the support of public worship, the care of the church property, and the proper provision for the due administration of the ordinances. To serve the “Tables”: The Table of the Poor, The Table of the Church, and The Table of the Pastor.

 

The pastor, however, is the shepherd, the guide, the overseer of the entire church, and should always be recognized as such by the deacons, who are only his assistants, as well as the rest of the church.
