I believe that the New Testament calls us to a radically different model of leadership; a model which has never really been tried, except in the early church. This model is joint leadership by a team of leaders who are equal in status, but who bring different gifts to the leadership process. There should be no hierarchy or pyramid. The co-ordinating and directing role is assigned to the Holy Spirit. http://www.kingwatch.co.nz/Church_Ministry/a_new_leadership_model.htm Amen.
The Bible tells us we need to attend church so we can worship God in Spirit and in truth with other believers and be taught His Word for our spiritual growth (Acts 2:42; Hebrews 10:25). Church is the place where believers can encourage one another, serve one another, instruct one another, honor one another, and be kind and compassionate to one another.
