OUR MINISTRIES

The purpose for all of our ministries is reflected in our mission statement: “We are God’s people engaging the power of the Holy Spirit, to execute our divine purpose, to make disciples for our Lord Jesus Christ through evangelism, preaching, teaching, witnessing, stewardship, fellowship, and worship with excited passion to demonstrate our love for God and neighbor by spiritually, financially, educationally, politically and socially empowering our members and community. ”Mt. Carmel has several different ministries all working together to achieve the church’s mission. Below are the ministries. Please note that during this year’s COVID-19 pandemic, the times and frequency of meetings have been subject to change or suspension.

ASSOCIATE MINISTERS:

So, Christ, Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors, and teachers to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4: 11-13

Mission Statement: To function in a spiritually mature, and effective way, by exercising our gifts, to strengthen and encourage the church, and come alongside Pastor Williams in ministering to the members here at the Mt. Carmel Church, and in our surrounding community.

DEACON MINISTRY:

Our Mission: The duties of the deacons are to minister to the needs of the members of the congregation.  The diaconate is a ministry of service and support.  It is specifically commissioned to address the spiritual needs of the membership as relates to grief, illness, birth, death, crisis (i.e. tragedies, accidents, legal dilemmas, incarcerations, etc.), and other similar ministries to the church body as needs occur, but in cooperation with the pastor (Acts 6:2-4).

Not everyone can perform the sensitive ministry that the diaconate may require.  However, there are certain basic biblical qualifications that must be evident for one to be a part of this critical ministry in the church. They are servants of the church.  They don’t give orders to the church; they receive instructions from the pastor and the church.  “They should never arrogate to themselves any authority for running the church.  Their greatest service to the church will usually be found in their assistance to the pastor.”

The biblical references to this ministry’s operation are found in Acts 6:1-7 as well as 1Timothy 3:8-13.  Additionally, they must be committed to tithing (Malachi 3:8-10), given to consistent attendance at worship, constant in prayer, and living a dedicated Christian life that is sensitive to the operation and function of our church.

So that this ministry may function in its highest capacity each deacon is committed to serving a delegated population of this congregation.  We have divided our congregation into an alpha series.  The following is designed to inform this membership which deacon is their initial contact person in time of need, emergency or crisis.
