Sermon Scripture: 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9

The Bible teaches that each local church should be led by a plurality of godly, qualified men called elders.
Where is it in the Bible? Paul lays out the qualifications for elders in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Passages that evidence a plurality of elders in one local church include Acts 14:23, Acts 20:17, 1 Timothy 4:14, 1 Timothy 5:17, and James 5:14.
