Role of Women

Role of Women
After careful thought we decided that we could not accept the traditional view – that women “should be excluded from areas of leadership and teaching because of Paul’s teaching on this subject”. After looking at the records of Paul’s ministry we decided that we could not accept this interpretation of Paul’s words, because it does not seem to fit with his actions when working with or speaking of women leaders of the early church. We therefore see no grounds for denying either men or women any office or function within the fellowship.
