What is the church, from your perspective? Is it a brick and mortar building, a place with bells and a steeple? Maybe it’s a specific denomination or a group of people belonging to a Pastor. In today’s message, Pastor John will share that the church is technically none of these! It’s the people of Christ, the body that gathers and is shepherded by a God-appointed leader. The church belongs to Jesus – He is the head and the leader, and He has written His guidelines for it in a book – the Bible! Now, let’s join Pastor John in the book of 1 Timothy chapter 3 as he begins his message A Checklist for Choosing a Pastor.

Scripture
1 Timothy 3:1 - 7

3:1 This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; 3 not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; 4 one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence 5 (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); 6 not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. 7 Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
