Canyon Bible Church affirms the God-ordained and significant role that
women should play in establishing and leading the local church. Every
leadership opportunity is open to women except those that are excluded
The Scriptures clearly state that men are to serve in the
office of Elder and that women are not to serve in church positions
in which they exercise authority over men or in which they teach
doctrine to men -- 1 Timothy 2:12
; 1 Timothy 3:1-2
; Titus 1:6-9
not see this as an issue of equality, for men and women are equal under
God. The Bible is clear that men and women do not have the same roles.
Qualified women should serve in any leadership position that is not
forbidden in the Scriptures.
