Is leaderless Christianity possible? Yes, if by “leader” we mean popes, bishops, pastors, elders, denominational heads or any other human leaders. None of these human leaders are necessary for the exercise of true Christianity as presented in the Bible. The only leader that Christianity needs is Jesus Christ.
The apostles of the New Testament refused to be treated as leaders. Instead, they presented themselves as servants. They kept pointing to the One who was greater than they. Anyone who speaks in the name of Christ today should walk according to that pattern. If anyone speaking in the name of Christ tries to exercise authority over you in any way, reject them. Christ alone is the leader of His people.
If you would be a true Christian, follow Jesus Christ. He is Lord. Do His will. The kingdoms of men will fail; the kingdom of God endures forever.
