Who are the Deacons of the Fayetteville Baptist Church? If you would like to talk to one of our deacons just give us a call at 304-574-1074 for a complete list and more personal info. This is the job description of our deacons and their ministry in the church constitution:
I Tim. 3:8-138 Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. 9 They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.11 In the same way, their wives are to be women worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything.12 A deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well. 13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.From The Holy Bible : New International Version (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1996, c1984). 1 Ti 3:8-13.
and the church constitution.
