1 Timothy Series: Qualifications for Deacons, Part B, 1 Tm. 3:8

In 1 Timothy 3 God's Word gives the qualities that a church should look for when choosing men to serve as elders and deacons. These character qualities are things God expects of all His children. The purpose of 1 Timothy 3's requirments of these things for elders and deacons is so that the church install men in these offices who are living a life that expects all of His children to live.
