SHEPHERDS OF THE FLOCK
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Chief Shepherd of His Church, and He governs His Church by His Word and His Spirit. Within this framework, the Lord calls certain men in the congregation to work together as a team of undershepherds – whom the Bible refers to as Elders/Overseers/Pastors. This shepherding team is responsible for watching over the church family, nourishing the flock with sound teaching, helping each Christian and Christian household grow in spiritual vitality and fruitful service, and leading the congregation into healthy worship, fellowship, and mission. South Paris Baptist Church is currently blessed with five elders, including one full-time pastor.
