Each Reformed Church is governed by Elders and Deacons elected out of, and by, the congregation forming a representative type of church government. As the liturgy when installing Deacons and Elders states: As the three offices of Deacon, Elder, and Minister are united in Christ, so also in the church one office is not separate from the others. The Minister does not serve without the Elder and neither without the Deacon. Together they enable the whole mission of the church. Everything in the church will be done decently and in order when faithful persons are called to office and responsibly fulfill their charge.
