A Woman's Place in Christ


For centuries the church has come under the influence of cultural norms whereby women have been held to second-class status. There has been gross misunderstanding of the role of women in society and the church and a marked refusal on the part of many to acknowledge our accomplishments. God is holding His church to a higher standard than the world's. He is calling for us to embrace the giftings of women and to appreciate the place they occupy in the heart and mind of God. read more

The Priority of Praise


God views praise and worship as high spiritual priorities. Praise, meaning "value" or "price," is the proclamation of God's importance or worth.

Many of the praise and worship expressions in the Scriptures were exhibited around David's tabernacle and are still culturally functional for today. As defined in Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, some of these Hebrew and Greek words are "ingredients" for the posture of worship and service to God.

Towdah is an extension of the hand. It implies a choir of worshipers lifting their hands (see Ps. 100:4). read more

Take the Risk of Faith

Women of The Word

NEW TRENDS IN BIBLE STUDIES CATER TO THE TIME-DEPRIVED AND THE INTERNET SAVVY.

Women have long been known to be the backbone of Christian congregations in America. According to a 2000 report from Christian researcher George Barna, one out of every five Christian women--or 20 percent--belong to a small group that meets regularly for Bible study, prayer or Christian fellowship. The same statistic among men is only 13 percent.

Unfortunately, family and jobs tend to dictate how much time a woman devotes to study of the Word. As women progress through different life stages they desire Bible studies that are tailored to their interests, schedules and spiritual maturity. read more
