How to Choose a Women Ministry
Women’s ministry is a very beautiful gift because it is a place where women from various backgrounds gather for fellowship and friendship. However, the most important goal of women ministries is to encourage women in their walk with God. However, many women have been disappointed or hurt by their experience in women’s ministry. In some cases, some women have been left with a wrong impression of God. You should focus your selection on a ministry’s focus on mirroring God’s deep love for us and the rest will fall in place. Use this guide to determine which women’s ministry suits you.
Are preachers faithfully preaching the Word week by week? In addition to faithfully preaching the Word of God, a good preacher also preaches God’s sole authority. Moreover, his/her preaching features the whole counsel of God and the toughest portions of God’s great anger against sin. He/she does not only provide encouragement but admonish. His/her entire preaching is grounded on the good news of Christ. Apostle Paul says that he was yearning to go to Rome so that he could preach to believers. Visit a women’s ministry and listen to gauge if its preaching is faithful to the Word and is it if somewhere you can feed week by week. You can also request to meet the preachers to ask the questions you think will help you to be fully settled on this point.
Is the women’s ministry based on the right doctrine? It is easier to tell about the biblical heritage of a ministry when you pay attention to its doctrinal statement or profession of faith and listening to its preaching and teachings. A variety of women’s ministry has wandered from the truth and focused on other things like tradition, looks, class, and more. A good ministry should prioritize the doctrine of salvation. In addition, it must affirm that the scriptures are flawless and inspired by God. Moreover, a good ministry affirms the ability of the Word in fully equipping saints for every good work for reverence and life.
Is the women’s ministry centered on the Holy scriptures? You can determine what a ministry values most by paying attention to what they put emphasis on from the pulpit, what its members discuss, and the things displayed on the walls. While some ministries focus on great music, others emphasize tradition and still others, on helping believers to dwell on the Word. Some people may prefer a women ministry because renowned people attend it or because of well-known preachers. Still, some women would choose to be members of a ministry for the mere reason of its political activism. However, other ministries base their heritage on faith. Even if none of these reasons is bad, Apostle Paul on the second verse of the second chapter of 1st Corinthians urges the church to be zealous to know Christ only and Him crucified. It is thus crucial to select a women ministry that will not only help you to know Christ but also grow in Him.
