Southern Baptist Convention

According to the Scriptures, Christ is Head over His church and the Chief Shepherd over His flock. The Holy Spirit is His Administrator. The pastor, called of God to the preaching of the Word, ordained by a Southern Baptist Church, and called to be the pastor of this local church, is the under shepherd of Christ. He, under the Holy Spirit, is the chief administrator of this local body.


He shall be a cooperating Southern Baptist who has been ordained to the gospel ministry.
The candidate will have a degree from a Southern Baptist Seminary.
In addition to meeting the scriptural qualifications of the office of pastor, the successful candidate will be an active church member who has had previous leadership experience in a Southern Baptist Church.
