Elders serve by governing the church in Christ’s name. They are responsible for the spiritual well being of God’s people. They must maintain true and pure preaching and teaching of the Word, regular celebration of the sacraments, and faithful counsel and discipline. And they must promote fellowship and hospitality among believers, ensure good order in the church, and stimulate witness to all people.
