"Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations."
Proverbs 27:23–24 (NIV)
Jesus alone is the head of the Church. We all serve under the mandate of Christ, following his example, following his direction. In the Presbyterian denomination, the leadership of individual churches is ordained to carry out his ministry, bringing others to him, strengthening the faith of the church body. At FPC, this is accomplished through the leadership of the pastors, elders, deacons, and staff - four groups of faithful, dedicated Christians, serving our Lord with humility, wisdom, and grace.
