Radiant Church firmly believes in a plurality of elders for the purpose of stewarding the church to the best of their abilities while seeking God’s will for His people. Radiant is governed by a body of pastoring elders, where the senior pastor is King Jesus. The elders’ primary responsibility is to give themselves to prayer while shepherding the church, and are held to the standard set in scripture according to 1 Tim 8:13, 1 Tim 2:11-3:7, 1 tim 8:13, Titus 1:5-10, and 1 Peter 5:1-5.
At Radiant Church, we believe Jesus is the senior pastor. This means the elders are under-shepherds of the Greatest Shepherd, Jesus. He is the one who perfectly builds the Church, loves His Church, connects His Church, and sends His Church. We are to submit to Him and His authority because He is the One who has purchased us through the Cross.
