Why Gender Matters Transcript

Excerpt:

"But there are roles and responsibilities at OCC women do not hold, namely that of an elder and the lead or teaching pastor. Our position as a church is what's known as the complementarian position. The complementarian position says God created men and women equally. Men and women are each created in the image and likeness of God and thus equal in worth, equal in value, and equal in ability. However, they are distinct in role and responsibility. Equal in worth, value, and ability, distinct in role and responsibility"
