Naming Righteousness

Disciple of Jesus = Student of Jesus himself / Follower of Jesus who is free of obligations to others and goes wherever possible to learn to imitate Jesus more perfectly. Outside of the Gospels and Acts, no one is called a disciple.
Apostle = missionary, sent by Jesus to make disciples of the nations that have yet to hear.
Believer = Someone who believes in the Lordship of Messiah Jesus.
Elder = Someone who helps lead a local gathering of believers. Usually older and married.
Servant = Helps in the functions of the local gathering and does whatever is needed to complete the good works of a local community of believers.
Pastor = someone who leads others to obey Jesus by feeding them the truth, normally in a local setting and in existing ties to a local community of believers.
Evangelist = Someone who tells the stories of how Jesus served in the first century in Israel and how he died in our place and how he reigns on high, risen as Lord.
Prophet = tells the word of God like it is. Uncompromising in their presentation of the truth, but encourages people to good works by announcing who Jesus is and what His will is in a situation.
Teacher = instructs other in the ways of Jesus and the work of the Lord.
Reader = Someone who reads the Bible to others so that they may believe.
Saint = Someone who is set apart to obey the Lord Jesus in their place of living.
Hearer = anyone who hears the word of God. Not necessarily a believer.
