Recognizing Jesus Christ as the head of the church, the governance of Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church can be described as elder led, deacon served, and congregationally governed. This means that:
- Overall leadership (care of souls, direction of program, oversight of teaching, and shaping of doctrine) is given by the body of elders.
- Deacons serve alongside the elders, managing the temporal affairs of the church (finances, property, and various committees as designated by the elders and congregation).
- All ministry, however, takes place with the participation and approval of the congregation who selects the elders and deacons and votes on large-scale decisions.
