Verse 1
Jesus established the church and how the church should be ran
If we're going to succeed then we need to follow His plan
So many gather in buildings but that don't make a church
So many children have fallen now their crawling and hurt
We need healthy leadership so we can have healthy churches
Thank God for Elders and Deacons who seek to worship
Lets take the Deacon whose role is to meet physical needs
He is not responsible to teach or even oversee
Deacons manage financial matter while serving the Elders
So they can focus on preaching teaching studying and praying
But they don't just focus on only just serving the Elders they also help us Acts 6 to see what I'm saying
They also maintain unity in the Body for sure
Many men like this will make a Body mature
So as we focus on honoring the covenant
I'm urging you toward congregational church government

Hook
See we have Elders we have Deacon and congregational leadership
Jesus is the head of the whole thing
What does that mean (repeat 4x)

Verse 2
They say Flame don't go soft on this talk about the offices
Establish that they BIble says there is 1-2
We've got Deacons we've got Elders we've got Elders we've got Deacons any other schol of thought just aint true
Now what the Elders do is oversee spiritually over the church
Laboring in prayer and in the word this is the Elders work
Plus they guard us so no false teaching comes seeping in
Plus they guard our souls so nobody go sinks in sin
Their living the gospel out that others may imitate
privately their counsel route is solidly Bible based
Plus they preach the word teach the word that the church may grow
Until He comes back sky cracks then the church will go
We're called to submit to them Hebrews 13:17
God gave them authority although we are a team
We've got authority too Matthew 18:15
Yes the tension exist this we submit to the King

Hook (repeat)

Verse 3
You came out the world now you get placed in the church
Given authority don't fall back you've got to work
Your part of the congregation and you've got a role to play
This is part of the priesthood of all believers you vote to say
Who the Elders are/ what people join
Doctrinal truth discipline too I'll keep going
You dill with disputes you've got the final say
On all these issues see this was issued on on the day
That you were converted regenerated for sure
You exercise this authority to keep the Body pure
You are accountability for the Elders in fact
But in humility we keep the Elders in tact
And when I say Elders I mean bishops pastors overseers
Those terms are synonymous honestly I know this is kind of shocking but this doctrine they seem to forget
