Pastor Teacher, Steve Ellis

Steve Ellis graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Masters of Arts in Biblical Studies in the Fall of 2000. He is a bi-vocational pastor and he has lived and worked in the Dallas area since 1990.  He is married and his wife, Sharon, works in the Dallas area as well..  Prior to moving to Dallas and after a tour of duty as an officer in the United States Marine Corps, Steve lived in his hometown, Little Rock, Arkansas.  Sharonís hometown is Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Steveís philosophy of ministry has been shaped by several factors which include the teaching he received from several pastors prior to attending seminary and the influence of respected seminary professors. The first key component of this philosophy is that the local church should have a spiritual yearning to see unbelievers understand the grace gospel of salvation through the provision made by Christís death. Central to this grace gospel is that unbelievers place their trust in the work of Christ alone and not their own good deeds that are insufficient to satisfy Godís righteousness.
  • Isaiah 64:6 For we have all become as one who is unclean, and all our righteousness is as a polluted garment: and we all fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
  • Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, that no one would boast.
  • Revelation 20:11-15 I saw a great white throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them. 12 I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works.
    13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them. They were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.

The second key component of Steveís philosophy of ministry is that the pastorís primary responsibility is to teach believers so that they may have the mind of Christ in them and thereby be properly motivated by their love for the Lord to exercise the Christian disciplines of Bible study, prayer, and witnessing and to serve Him with their spiritual gift. It is Steveís belief that the reason that Christians fail in exercising the Christian disciplines and in Christian service using their spiritual gift is directly related to a lack of sound instruction in the Word. The Church of the Servant King exists to provide believers with a means to grow in their love and consequent service for the Lord through a personal motivation built upon a sound grounding in His Word.Pastor Teacher, Steve Ellis

  • Philipians 2:5 Have this in your mind, which was also in Christ Jesus,
