How The Church Is Different

Proper church order stands in marked contrast to the self-made and self-authorized teacher who gathers admirers with their checkbooks.  The church that Christ is building and Timothy is called to serve has checks and balances.  It’s not “Timothy’s church” or “Timothy’s ministry,” but Christ’s, built on the foundation of the apostles.
