Members of the Women’s Ordination Conference join an community who believe:
† The church, in fidelity to the gospel, must be open to the full and equal participation of women in all its ministries
† Women have an equal right to have their call to ordination tested and their church leadership respected
† Decisions affecting the life of the whole church should reflect the experiences of all genders and thought
† The church hierarchy should not define male and female “roles” or perpetuate any system that defines or limits one’s gifts or calling on the basis of gender
† Renewing the priesthood is a critical step in revitalizing the entire church and being an effective, welcoming presence in our contemporary world.
