Deacon

At Gatlin Baptist Church we understand the Bible to clearly teach that there are two distinct offices in the church, being Elder/Pastor and Deacon. Both of these office are vitally important to the health of the body. If you aspire to serve the Lord and His bride as a deacon at Gatlin we would encourage you pray through your calling, get connected, begin serving, let your aspirations be known to one of the Elders/Pastors, and submit to a discipleship relationship with one of our Elders/Pastors. It would also be advantageous to read through the following articles to get a glimpse of how we see the office as best exercised to the praise of His glory!
