The first thing a new believer should do is to be baptized into a local, autonomous, New Testament Church whose main goal is the glory of God and who uplifts the name of Jesus Christ and His name only. The local church was ordained by God to do his work in this age of grace. All ministries should be out of a properly ordered New Testament church body.
The New Testament gives complete instructions for the order of a New Testament church. Every church member-pastor, teacher, evangelist, elder, deacon, etc.–although given a specific role in the spiritual body which is a church, is equal to all other members and is to be guided by New Testament commandments and principles so that “the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love” (Ep. 4.16).
