I know some people may not like this The bible never speaks of submitting yourself to the church, it says the church submits to Christ. It even talks about submitting the the law of the land (authorities), but never the church. The “church” was never supposed to be a place of authority and power (that was the Pharisees, and Jesus spoke against that)
The Bible speaks about submitting yourself to the elders.
“Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.” Hebrews 13:17
The elders can only be ordained, they cannot ordain themselves:
“And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed”. Acts 14:23
