Does God care about the structure of a local congregation?  Not only does He care deeply, but He has also given insight into how a church ought to conduct & structure itself if we consider the full counsel of God in the New Testament.  In this sermon, we dig into the importance of Biblical structure for the local church and what authority has been given to Elders, Deacons and the Congregation.
