A community of baptized believers in Jesus Christ. Our church consists of people from Hebron and the surrounding towns. At our church we have members and elders.
Members are men and women who regularly attend the worship service, sacrificially give to the gospel work of the church, guard the doctrine and life of the church, and submit to the head of the church: Jesus Christ.
Pastors/elders are men, according to Scripture, who lead our church in the ministry of preaching and teaching the Bible, in modeling a Christ-like life, and in prayer. Qualifications for pastors/elders are laid out in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1.
