1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 provide the biblical basis for characteristics of church leaders, with the ultimate example being Christ. Here at MVBC, we believe that church leaders must pattern their lives after Christ, and live in such a way as to be an example of faith to the church body (Hebrews 13:7).
