The Campbellsville Christian Church is a self-governed independent congregation of Christians following the practice of the churches found in the New Testament. The Elders (Acts 14:23, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 1 Peter 5:1-2) are the spiritual leaders of the church. Deacons (Acts 6:1-6, 1 Timothy 3:7-13) are the serving leaders of the church. They are chosen by the congregation from among men who possess the qualities set forth in the New Testament.
At Campbellsville Christian Church, the Elders and Deacons also meet together as a Church Board on a monthly basis to conduct the business of the church.
Since the church is congregationally governed, a number of issues are brought to the church membership. Such issues include the calling of staff ministers, election of congregational officers, acceptance of an annual budget, and purchase or sale of properties.
