God asks the Church to be a community of people sharing a common purpose and fellowship, continually growing in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God.  Paul describes the Church as "His body, the fullness of Him who fills every thing in every way" (Ephesians 1:22).  God calls every member of the Church into ministry, gifted by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:11,12).  A Deacon, like any other Church Officer, is a ministering servant of God, called to serve the Church and the Community.

The Office of Deacon presents a marvelous opportunity for service within the Church, affecting the physcial appearance of the Church, the atmosphere in which the Church Services are conducted, the comfort of the worshipers, leading and coordinating the programs and sacraments of the Church, as well as dealing with the temporal needs of the Church Family--all for building up the Church Body.

When it became evident in the New Testament Church that a certain segment of the congregation was being neglected, the Church chose seven men "of honest report, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom" to take care of the needs of the Church members.
