292P Five Views on Church Government
The Bible says little about how alocal assembly should organize its government. 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, the Corinthian correspondences, and the book of Acts give us some insight into Church polity and government. Nevertheless, these letters countenance for a great deal of diversity in the Church when it comes to how people organize their ecclesiastical administration. This course will examine five kinds of Church government. Each ecclesiastical administration is presented by a Biblical scholar who will corroborate his position with Scripture. The student will broaden his/her perspective on Church government and be able to evaluate his/her own local Church administration in the light of Scripture.
