Purpose and Function of the Deaconate
The deacon body, servants or ministers to the Body of Christ, is a service-oriented ministry
dedicated to providing for the spiritual and physical needs of the church
as exemplified in Acts 6 with the appointment of the seven.
Deacon responsibilities to the congregation include
such activities as prayer, visitation, benevolence, and logistics.
First Baptist Church Highlands holds to the qualifications of a deacon
to be those listed in 1 Timothy 3:8-13.
