Rolland McCune on Pastoral Authority

July 24, 2017

The local church which elects its pastor is the source of his ecclesiastical authority. He carries no inherent authority as a person and does not rule the local church by any native rights or gifts. This type of authority is bestowed by the local church and may be withdrawn by the local church.
