“And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church.” Ephesians 1:22
There are those in the Christian community who believe that the church does not need leaders, especially those of the five-fold ministry. They say that Christ is the head now, which I will not deny, but they say that since He is the head of the church there is no longer any need for ministers and leaders. It is very clear though that God gave to the church ministry gifts to perfect the church. The problem isn’t that we shouldn’t have leaders, the problem is that the leaders haven’t let Christ be head over them. Christ is the head over all things to the church, and He is to be head over His chosen leaders.
