The head of the church is Christ. We affirm Christ leads his church through elders--men of His choice as affirmed by and accountable to the congregation--to carry on the spiritual oversight of God's work under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Our senior pastor and team of elders pray fervently and serve selflessly for the spiritual well-being and smooth functioning of His people here at Judson Baptist Church.
