The natural state of man is a chaotic run to sinfulness and selfishness which divides and ultimately ends in destruction. This is why total anarchy could never work in society. We are a people who desperately need leadership. We need guidance. By God's grace, he raises of leaders within his church who are called to oversee and to lead the congregation by example. He has called and equipped pastors who resemble the knowledge of truth which accords with godliness. A deep understanding of God's plan for leadership in the local church is absolutely foundational to our lives and to our church.
