A bit of Theology
At Chandler Presbyterian, we believe that Jesus of Nazareth is Head of the Church. We are a particular church in a family of churches connected to the Church, composed of other believers all over the world. The word "Church" has its root meaning in a gathering of people.
We are a diverse gathering of people who have our commonality in Jesus, who we believe is the Christ, the Son of God. We look to him for our salvation both eternally and daily. We also call him "Lord" as we are his followers. He is our spiritual "Master". We are committed to following in his Way. The early "Christians" were not initially known by the word "Christian". We were called followers of the "Way". Jesus' Way. By God's grace, we hope to grow in our willingness and ability to follow Jesus' teachings, his Way, in every aspect of our lives. Come join us!

What is an “Elder”?
From the Book of Order, G-2.0301:
Ruling elders are so named not because they “lord it over” the congregation (Matt. 20:25), but because they are chosen by the congregation to discern and measure its fidelity to the Word of God, and to strengthen and nurture its faith and life. Ruling elders, together with teaching elders, exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of a congregation as well as the whole church, including ecumenical relationships. When elected by the congregation, they shall serve faithfully as members of the session.
You are welcome to come to a Session/Elder meeting and observe! We meet the 4th Tuesday each month at 6:00 pm.

What is a "Deacon"?
From the Book of Order, G-2.0201:
The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, sincere compassion, and sound judgment should be chosen for this ministry.
