-“Therefore, brethren, seek
out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of
the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we many appoint over this
business.” Acts 6:3 (KJV)
Deacons are to have charge of the sick and needy members and
whatever temporal affairs may require attention. Deacons are
also to act as assistants to the Pastor in advancing the general
interests of the body, both temporal and spiritual.
