At Bethel Baptist Church, we believe that the clear testimony of Scripture points to the church being governed in spiritual affairs by a plurality (more than one) of elders. Elders in plurality include vocational elders, those who earn their living from ministry, and non-vocational elders, those who have occupations outside of the church.
