We are a Jesus-ruled, elder-led, deacon-served, and congregationally-responsible church.

That means:

Jesus is the senior pastor of our church. All that we do follows his leadership.

Elders/pastors (paid and unpaid) are the “missional pacesetters” at Soma: men responsible for the theological vision and spiritual vitality of the church.

Staff (paid) and deacons (paid or unpaid) are men and women who help carry out the elders’ vision.

Ultimately, every covenant member is an emerging leader who is responsible for making disciples in their neighborhoods and network of relationships.
