Pastoral Authority


“I have applied all these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, brothers, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up in favor of one against another.” 1 Corinthians 4:6

“What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each.”  1 Corinthians 3:5
