Foundations #11: Displaying His Glory As Men and Women
Topic: Ministry Passage: Genesis 1:3
MINISTERS: Men and Women in Ministry
Scripture: Genesis 1:26-28; 1 Corinthians 11:1-12; 14:26-35
God has created men and women in His image and given both the mandate of exercising dominion over the created realm. He has also uniquely designed each to represent his image in the household and the church. He has called husbands to humbly and sacrificially lead as heads of their homes, while wives are called to complement their husband’s headship through loving submission as helpmates. Since the church is the household of God, its order should be an example of the order in the household. Therefore, men are called to humbly and sacrificially lead the church, while partnering in ministry with women. Doxa will be led and equipped by biblically qualified men, in partnership with their wives. We will also be equipped and mobilized for ministry by our biblically qualified male and female lead servants (Deacons). Our overall goal is to see all men and women, young and old, equipped and mobilized for ministry with all the gifts and in all the spheres of church life.
