You can sign the Manifesto at the end

A personal and group declaration of creeds, promises, and prayer intent—that Jesus Christ may be exalted and that the glory and redeeming power of God's love may be manifested to the ends of the earth.

We believe that God is the Sovereign Lord of the universe and the Creator of life, and that everything created exists for His delight and to bring Him glory. 1

We believe that the creation of humanity, as male and female, was an intentional and wonderful part of God's wise plan, and that men and women were created to reflect the image of God in complementary but distinct ways. 2

We believe that sin has separated every human being from God and has made us unable to reflect His image as we were created to do. Our only hope for restoration and salvation is found in repenting of our sins and trusting in Christ who lived a sinless life, died in our place, and was raised from the dead. 3

We recognize that we live in a culture that does not recognize God's right to rule, nor accept the Holy Scriptures as the standard for life, and is suffering the consequences of abandoning God's design for men and women. 4

We believe that Jesus Christ is redeeming this sinful world and making all things new; and his followers are called to share in his redemptive purposes, as they seek, through his power, to transform those aspects of life that have been stained and ruined by sin. 5

As Christian women, we desire to honor God by living counterculture lives that reflect to the world the beauty of Christ and His Gospel.

To this end, we declare that...

The Scriptures are God's authorized means of instructing us in His ways and revealing His pattern for our womanhood, character, priorities, roles, responsibilities, and relationships. 6

We glorify God and experience His blessings when we accept and joyfully embrace His design, functions, and order for our lives. 7

As redeemed sinners , we cannot fully experience the beauty of our biblical womanhood, separated from the sanctifying work of the Gospel and the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. 8

Both men and women were created in the image of God and are equal in value and dignity, but they have different roles and functions in the home and in the Church. 9

We are called , as women, to affirm and encourage men in their quest to express their godly masculinity; and to honor and support the leadership that God has ordained in the home and in the Church. 10

Marriage , as created by God, is a sacred, binding, lifelong covenant between a man and a woman. eleven

When we humbly respond to male leadership, in the home and in the church, we demonstrate a noble submission to authority, which reflects Christ's submission to the authority of God, His Father. 12

Selfish insistence on our personal rights is contrary to the spirit of Christ who humbled Himself, took the form of a servant, and laid down His life for us. 13

Human life is precious to God and must be cherished and protected from the moment of conception until death. 14

Children are a blessing from God; and women were specially designed to be givers and sustainers of life, whether to their biological or adopted children, and to other children in their sphere of influence. fifteen

God's plan for humanity is broader than marriage. All women, married or single, must model femininity in their various relationships; exhibiting distinctive modesty, sensitivity and gentleness of spirit. 16

Suffering is an inevitable reality in a fallen world. At times we will be called to suffer doing what is right, looking to heavenly reward rather than earthly delights, for the sake of the Gospel and the advancement of Christ's Kingdom. 17

Mature Christian women have the responsibility of leaving a legacy of faith, discipling younger women in the Word and ways of God and modeling lives of fruitful womanhood for the next generation. 18

Believing in the above, we declare our intention and desire to become “True Women” of God. We dedicate ourselves to fulfilling his calling and purpose for our lives. Through his grace and in humble dependence on his power, we:

  1. We will seek to love God our Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. 19
  2. We will joyfully relinquish control of our lives to Christ as Lord – we will say, “Yes, Lord” to the Word and will of God. twenty
  3. We will be women of The Word, seeking to grow in our knowledge of the Scriptures and live according to sound doctrine in every area of ​​our lives. twenty-one
  4. We will cultivate our communion and intimacy with God through prayer: in praise, thanksgiving, confession, intercession and supplication. 22
  5. We will embrace and express our unique design and calling as women, with humility, gratitude, faith and joy. 2
  6. We will seek to glorify God by cultivating virtues such as purity, modesty, submission, meekness and love. 24
  7. We will show the respect due to men and women, created in the image of God, considering others as better than ourselves; seeking to build them up, putting aside bitterness, hatred and evil words. 25
  8. We will be faithfully engaged in our local church, submitting to our spiritual leaders, growing in the context of the community of faith, using the gifts God has given us to serve others, building up the Body of Christ, and fulfilling His redemptive purposes in the world. world. 26
  9. We will seek to establish homes that manifest the love, grace, beauty and order of God; that they provide a climate favorable to life and that they extend Christian hospitality to those outside the walls of our home. 27
  10. We will honor the sanctity, purity and permanence of the marriage covenant, whether ours or that of others. 28
  11. We will receive children as a blessing from God, seeking to train them to love and follow Jesus Christ and to consecrate their lives to His Gospel and His Kingdom. 29
  12. We will model the command of Titus 2, as older women, modeling godliness and training the younger ones to please God in every way; as young women receiving instruction with meekness and humility, aspiring to become mature women of God who in turn will train the next generation. 30
  13. We will seek opportunities to share the Gospel of Christ with the unsaved. 31
  14. We will reflect the heart of God towards the poor, sick, oppressed, widows, orphans and those in prison; ministering to their physical and spiritual needs in the name of Christ. 32
  15. We will pray for a movement of revival and reformation among God's people that will result in the advancement of the Kingdom and Gospel of Christ among all nations. 33
