Baptist Women in Ministry expresses solidarity with Immanuel Baptist Church and Rev. Katie McKown in the face of the SBC Executive Committee’s decision to disfellowship their congregation.
This decision further solidifies what the SBC has already stated it believes and has put into practice—that God should be limited.
Barring women from serving in pastoral ministry and leadership limits the church from fulfilling its mission. It limits the ways the Spirit can lead individuals and churches. It puts God in a human-made box and tells God what God cannot do.
It is time to embrace a limitless God and a limitless church, by demonstrating unlimited support for women in ministry.
