Discrimination in the Church


There is neither


Jew nor Greek


slave nor free


male nor female


for you are all one

in Christ Jesus

Galatians 3:28



Class, Race, Nationality and Gender should not form the basis for our coming together

We should not discriminate on the basis of Nationality, Race, Occupation, Class or Gender

Women have an important role to play in the Church as do men

Nobody should be excluded or favored on these grounds

see Women in the Church



What then shall we say, brothers?

When you come together,


 has a hymn,

or a word of instruction,

a revelation,

a tongue

or an interpretation.

All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.

1Corinthians 14:26




For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.

1Corinthians 14:31
