The Lord Jesus Christ is the head of our (and every) church (Ephesians 1.22; 5.23; Colossians 1.18).

Under Christ we have two main types of leaders:

Who have oversight of the church, including pastors who lead the day-to-day ministry.

Who are responsible for the practical running of the church.

Both these roles are accountable to the church members. See lower down for support staff.
