- Take a lot of seriousness, responsibility, wisdom and love to the fulfillment of the great commission.

The Biblical Office of the Pastor
Las Escrituras usan tres palabras para enseñar acerca del Oficio del Pastor: (Como la Biblia usa tres palabras principales para hablar de nuestro Salvador, Cristo, Jesús, Señor).
1. Pastor – Ephesians 4:11
- Definition: One who shepherds, nourishes, guides and protects.
- See also: Matthew 9: 33; 23: 31; Mark 14:27; John 10: 2; 11, 14, 1. Hebrews 13:20, 1 a. Peter 2:25.
2. Bishop – 1 a. Timothy 3: 1-7
- Definition: One who manages, cares, and provides direction and protection. Supervisor.
- See also: Acts 20:28, 1 a. Timothy 3: 1-2, Titus 1: 7, 1 a. Peter 2:25.
3. Elder -1 a. Timothy 5: 17-7.
- Definition: One who directs, represents, judges, governs, and is a leader.
- See also: Acts 11:30, 14:23, 15: 2-o, 22:23, 1: 4, 20:17, 21:18, 22: 5, 1 a. Timothy 5: 1, 5: 17-19, Titus 1: 5, James 5:14, la. Peter 5: 1, 11 John 1, 111 John 1.
It is rare that in the scriptures the three terms speak of the same office in the local New Testament Church:
- The three words describe the same work (office – leader).
- Peter speaks of this work and exchanges words. 1 a. Peter 5: 1-5..
- Peter instructs the ELDERS – verse 1.
- To be good bishops – those who take care of the Church. I a. Timothy 3: 4-5. Verse 2
- While they are shepherding their people (examples of the flock), verse 3.
The three terms (bishop, elder, and pastor) are used to describe the same office of the New Testament. However they do not speak of the same work, because there are variety of functions; Included with each term. All this makes the man of God – The Pastor.
