CBS Statement on Biblical Gender Roles

CBS affirms that men and women are created in the image of God (Gen. 1:26-27) and given spiritual equality in their relationship with the Creator (Gal. 3:28). We affirm that men and women have full access to God through the redemption of Jesus Christ. In love, God has established distinct roles and responsibilities for women and men.  We affirm the Bible’s teaching on biblical gender roles, which teaches men and women are equal in value but different in their functions within the home and the church. We also affirm that the opinions, ideas, and proposals of men and women are of equal value and should be considered under the instruction of the Scripture and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. When men and women work together in their respective functions, then two are better than one, God is glorified, and the church and home are edified.
