Conducting Ourselves in the Church – 1 Timothy 3

Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.

1 Timothy 3:14-15

Paul has been writing to Timothy to keep he and the church on track as he is leading the church in Ephesus. In the previous chapter, Paul spoke about how the times of prayer and worship should be conducted as well as the roles for men and women.

Now in this chapter, Paul is speaking about the appointment of elders and deacons and how the church is to be led and governed, and through these things, we can see that there is a way in which the church is ordered and managed, a proper way in which it is to be led.
