Deacons are men that
have been chosen to serve in a specific area of the church. Deacons
are not Elders and they do not oversee the church. The Word of
God tells us Deacons must meet certain qualifications.
Timothy 3:8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued,
not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; 9 Holding
the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. 10 And let these
also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon,
being found blameless. 11 Even so must their wives be grave, not
slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. 12 Let the deacons
be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own
houses well. 13 For they that have used the office of a deacon
well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness
in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
