Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God,which he bought with his own blood.

-Acts 20:28

Jesus Christ built and established the church and became the head of His Church, with the people being the body of Christ's church.

He is the authority and speaks in the scriptures as God, revealed it through the direction of the Holy Spirit.  

The Scriptures are our only written standard for wisdom and salvation, teaching and guidance. 

2 Timothy 3:14 - 17

In each local congregation, under the headship of Jesus, elders/shepherds(pastors)  

are appointed to oversee local affairs.
