  • High Pointe Statement on Elder Nominations

    October 17, 2017

    “The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore, an overseer must be above reproach, . . .” (1 Timothy 3:1-2, ESV).

    According to our confession of faith (the 1853 New Hampshire Confession, Article XIII), we, High Pointe, confess together that the only officers of a gospel church “are elders (also called pastors) and deacons, whose qualifications, claims, and duties are defined in the Epistles to Timothy and Titus.”

    Our constitution and by-laws explain how we, as a church, understand the role of such officers and carry out their election. In relation to elders, as noted in Article V, section 2, we agree that “subject to the will of the congregation, the elders shall oversee the ministry and resources of the church. In keeping with the principles set forth in Acts 6:1-6 and 1 Peter 5:1-4, the elders shall devote their time to prayer, the ministry of the Word (by teaching and encouraging sound doctrine), and shepherding God’s flock.”
