Deacons are the servant-ministers of the Church. Deacons are to give their primary attention toward honoring God by assisting the under shepherd of Christ in ministering to the spiritual and physical growth of the church. Deacons have the honor of modeling, for the local Church and the lost world, God's compassion, kindness, mercy, and love. As the Church compassionately cares for people's needs, the world sees a visible display of Christ's love, which will draw some people to the Savior. Deacons are to be an example of commitment, unity, and harmony in their service.
