Their functions include establishing churches, and building and caring for them, meeting the spiritual needs of the various officers and members in the Church, and ordaining ministers and officers of the Church. They also keep discipline in the Church, impart spiritual gifts to others (Rom. 1:11; 2 Tim. 1:6; Luke 6:13), and dedicate church buildings and other properties of the Church.
