In order to follow the example of the New Testament Church Government, Life Unlimited has chosen to adhere to the pattern as set forth in 1 Corinthians 12:28: “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, divers kinds of tongues” along with the five fold government of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher listed in Ephesians 4:11-12.
These "office gifts" operate in the functions of leadership at Life Unlimited, which forms the leadership of the church as a plurality of elders. This form of government was designed by the Lord to avoid a "one man rule" or an unbalance of power in leadership. The reason that this form of leadership and government work well in the church is the governing elders and leadership have a mutual respect and love for one another that results in honoring the office. Currently, Life Unlimited government consists of the Apostle, Prophet and Pastor/Teacher.
