Deacon Body

 
Contact deacons at: deacons@unitybaptist.us
Deacon, or diakoneo, is translated “serve”. This refers to an attendant, waiter, or one who ministers to another. Deacons are servant-leaders who were scripturally established in the first century church to serve and minister to the body of believers. Deacons are men selected by the church who meet the the doctrinal qualifications given in the Bible.
 
Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain.They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.” 
1 Timothy 3:8-13
