Understanding gender roles in the church is another matter of great controversy today. The main issue is whether or not woman are allowed into the positions of elder or lead pastor.
- OUR POSITION
Our position as a church is to take a complementarian view. While we believe in the priesthood of all believers and equality with regards to oneness in Christ, this view holds to males only in church as to government positions, SPECIFICALLY ELDER AND LEAD PASTOR - equal value, different roles. This does not exclude women from teaching, leading, or serving in other areas. (1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9)
