Biblical Church Government – Part 2

"The competency of that qualification and the sincerity of that inclination, must not be left to the judgment of every man for himself….   For the preservation of due order in the Church, this must needs be referred and submitted to the judgment of a competent number of those that are themselves in that office and of approved wisdom and experience in it…, and who are empowered to set apart such as they find so qualified and inclined to this work of the Ministry….   They that are thus set apart, not only may but must preach….   The Word preached, is the ordinary means of working faith."
