Deacons

Preamble

As member of the Deacon Ministry of Oak Grove Baptist Church, we must be born again believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. With the aid of the Holy Spirit, we shall assist our Pastor in the spiritual leadership of the Church; conducting the Church Ordinances; conducting the Church Worship Services, caring for the sick and needy; and conflict resolutions. We will be zealous in our efforts to protect and maintain the Sanctity, Sovereignty and Holiness of God's Church.


Mission Statement

"Declaring ourselves as duly elected Deacons of Oak Grove Baptist Church, our firm commitment is to work toward the attainment of excellence in the fulfillment of our assigned ministry. We see ourselves as servants of Jesus Christ and lay assistants to the Pastor. Our effort will be for the general welfare and spiritual well-being of this Church family. We promise to never become a hindrance to the Pastor, or to see ourselves as supervisor to him, but are chosen to pray for him, and to be Deacons who uphold the Pastor's arms."

 The Biblical qualifications for a deacon are found in Acts 6 and in I Timothy 3:8-13.


Deacon Family Ministry Plan

What is the Deacon Family Ministry Plan? It is a plan through which the deacons can join the Pastor and church staff in ministering to the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of each church member and family. The resident church families are divided into groups of ten or more families. Each group of families is then assigned to a deacon who will minister to them over a period of time.
