Married women: Titus 2:3-5 gives you a clear pattern to follow. Titus 2:3-5 “3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, 4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.”

Single women: take Phoebe as your example. Romans 16:1-2 “1 I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant of the church at Cenchreae, 2 that you may welcome her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints, and help her in whatever she may need from you, for she has been a patron of many and of myself as well.”

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We are a cooperating member of The Southern Baptist Convention. We confess the 1689 second london baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the reformationas well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
