Women's Ministry

“Endeavoring to keep the unity of the spirit of the bond of peace”
Ephesians 4:3


Women have been a vital part of the ongoing ministry of the Bible Way Church of Atlas Road since its humble beginnings in 1963. This ministry now reaches around the world with a special focus on intercessory prayer and bible study.

The purpose of the Women’s Ministry is to equip women to minister to others with the common goal of doing the will of God.

The Women’s Ministry is dedicated to embracing all women in the church. Although all women who join Bible Way are considered a part of the Women’s Ministry, we encourage active participation in any of the ministries, programs and services being offered in order to stimulate spiritual growth. By this, we endeavor to create an atmosphere where women can experience spiritual maturity and fellowship, develop their leadership skills, and minister to others in the local church and their communities.

Dedicated women are making a significant difference by their commitment to devote their time, talents and finances to promote the goals of the Women’s Ministry. We encourage women to accept their responsibility as women of God who will offer themselves as living sacrifices, acceptable and pleasing to God; be devoted to one another in love, honoring one another above themselves; serve God and Bible Way with zeal, keeping their spiritual fervor; joyfully hope; being patient in affliction and faithful in prayer; and sharing with God’s people who are in need.
