The office of deacon is not an office of authority, but one of service. A man who agrees to serve as a deacon in a New Testament Church, agrees to be an example in spirit, love, devotion, and loyalty. The Deacon Ministy has 3 major responsibilities:
- to assist the pastor with Ministy to the church body
- to assist the church to build and maintain Christian fellowship and unity.
- to serve as exemplary Christian leaders in the church and community.
Currently ministries are to the Widows of First Baptist and the needy through the Benevolence Ministry.
Deacons: Lynn Sandell, Ray Byrd, Bobby Cargile
