Women in Ministry
Women participate equally with men in the priesthood
of all believers. Their role is crucial, their wisdom, grace and commitment
exemplary. Women are an integral part of our Southern Baptist boards,
faculties, mission teams, writer pools, and professional staffs. We
affirm and celebrate their Great Commission impact.
While Scripture teaches that a woman's role is not identical to
that of men in every respect, and that pastoral leadership is assigned
to men, it also teaches that women are equal in value to men.
