Question: What do we say about pastors or church leaders wearing priestly garments. Aren't we all part of the New Testament priesthood? Is it necessary for church leaders to wear them?

Answer: You are right that all believers are members of the royal priesthood of Jesus Christ. You are also correct that there is no need for anyone to wear special garments that are calculated to make them appear holy and set them apart from everyone else. In fact, we believe leaders should go out of their way to connect with people and not appear to be superior. Please read the letter to a pastor we have posted on the Apostolic Free Library on this website. It can be found on Shelf 3.
