The church in the New Testament had elders, also called bishops ("overseers" - Acts 20:17, 28; 1 Timothy 3:1-7) and shepherds ("pastors" - 1 Peter 5:1-3; Ephesians 4:11), who oversee the spiritual work and teaching of the church. The New Testament church also had deacons who served the church in its physical necessities (1 Timothy 3:8-13; Acts 6:1-4). The church which meets at 1028 N. 32nd street in Paducah, Ky., is blessed to have 5 elders and 5 deacons.
