Mabel White Baptist Church seeks to be a New Testament Church committed to the teachings of the Bible. No other authority or tradition is to guide the means, faith, or structure of the Lord Jesus Christ's Church. The pastoral and administrative structure for a New Testament Church is to utilize a plurality form of leadership. Therefore, the government of Mabel White Baptist Church, under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, will be vested in the Elders.
Deacons are the servant-ministers of the Church. Their purpose is to relieve Elders of the multitude of practical duties of caring for the flock. Deacons are to give their primary attention toward caring for the congregation's physical welfare. They are to be an example of commitment, unity, and harmony in their service.
Mabel White Baptist Church is blessed to have a number of men serving in both these capacities.
