Harbor Bible Church operates under a multiple eldership polity. As the Scriptures teach, the elders/pastors, are to meet all the qualifications mentioned in 1 Timothy 3. Their calling is to manage the church (1 Timothy 3:2, 5; 5:17). The congregation is responsible to hold the elders accountable to the Word of God (Matthew 18 and 1 Timothy 5:19-20). The deacons are called to serve specific physical needs in the church.
We are grateful for the godly leadership team the Lord has raised up for this ministry.
