As an independent local church we take the issue of accountability seriously. From time to time we are asked to whom are we accountable? As we seek to follow the Biblical model of local church, we made a decision not to be part of the denominational model. We see denominations as being man-made impositions upon the Body of Christ, resulting in division. The Church is not an organization, therefore, we appeal to Scripture which calls for a plural eldership in which each elder is appointed according to the character qualifications as outlined in Timothy and Titus. The church is lead by men of integrity, operating in an open manner including open financial accounting. We take seriously Paul’s injunction of mutual submission in the body and seek the consensus of all who freely associate with the church, whenever decisions affect the whole body.
