Spirit directs the gospel ministry

"The Holy Spirit of God alone directs the gospel ministry into the field of labor. The church has the authority to ordain those she deems to meet the qualifications as set forth in the Lord's word. The church also has the responsibility to watch those that she has ordained to see if they continue to conduct themselves in a manner that is in harmony with the Lord's word. If the church finds that the conduct of a minister is unbecoming to his office and in violation of the principles and qualifications of the Lord's word, the church will need to take action to correct, instruct, rebuke, or discipline the offending minister or if need be, remove his authority to remain in the gospel ministry." -- Mark Thomas
