If we judged Christianity by its women`s conferences, we would be led to believe that the Bible is no more than a series of compliments from God to man. Instead, the real story is far less complimentary and far more humiliating. Jesus didn`t come to earth because we were beautiful, special, or great. He came because we were too grossly sinful to bridge the gap between ourselves and God.

That`s not a message we want to hear from the stage of Extraordinary Women, is it? But it`s the one we need, because women who think they`re pretty awesome don`t need a savior.

Women wonder if we`re enough. Looking at the titles of the books we read, We at (GBCI) know that women are entangled with insecurity, fear, and identity crises. We`re in this constant state of "struggle" with very little victory, never really living as "conquerors in Christ" (Rom. 8:37). These are real spiritual issues, but you know what? We have yet to see one woman set free from insecurity by being told however repetitively that she is beautiful It doesn`t work, and It`s not the answer.

The truth is that, apart from the transforming power of Christ, I`m not beautiful, special, or all that unique. I`m born into sin and bent to rebellion. My insecurities and fears pulse through Adam`s blood in my veins. These can`t be rooted out with shallow "encouragements". What women need and (GBCI) is providing to women all over the world is a soul-deep solution to the problem of sin. Insecurity is not the problem. Fear, poor self-image, marriage problems these are just symptoms of the real disease. The disease is sin, and we all have it.

(GBCI) offers freedom, not compliments.
Again, it is not a bad message. But it`s theologically deficient, and if the goal of a women`s ministry is to encourage and equip female Christians, the message has to change the status quo. The Gospel is good news only to those who recognize their need for Jesus. When you create a culture that uses Jesus for little more than a spiritual feel-good, it`s no wonder the women it produces can`t get victory over anxiety, anger, insecurity, or fear. They leave churches knowing all about themselves and knowing little about Christ.

The solution is simple. (GBCI) will not preach the easy message, and will provide all women with the right message. we will not exalt women and began exalting Christ. And here`s the amazing thing about a gospel-centric women`s ministry at (GBCI) When all women do is worship Jesus, the insecurities, fears, and anxieties pale in comparison to His everlasting glory.

When our eyes turn to His beauty instead of pandering to ours, insecurities die.
When our ears listen for His beauty instead of listening for more about us, fear has no place.
When our minds think about who he is instead of who we are, we find an identity wrapped in eternal purpose.

At (GBCI) that`s the crazy thing about the gospel: our pre-Jesus ugliness magnifies the beauty of God`s love. Only by understanding who we are apart from Christ can we live in daily recognition of our beauty within Him. We need to be reminded of who He is to better understand who we are.

Our mission is to reach, teach, mentor, and empower the women of our church
and the world, through the word of God. Our symbol is "the butterfly".


Each component of our mission represents one of the wings of the butterfly. Collectively the 4 wings provide balance and beauty.


" You are beautiful, a chosen special woman of God. There is no one in the world like you!!!!"

These are the messages woman hear time after time on the radio, in books, at conferences even emblazoned on coffee mugs and shirts at every LifeWay Store in America. It`s the same message directed at Christian women in every corner of the world and western culture. And it`s a message that while well-intentioned remains deficient no matter how many times it`s preached. Bishop Toris T. Young and the leaders of the women`s ministry of (GBCI) is doing what most other`s have not done and that is to preach truth to our woman, You see, we understand that you may actually not be special and neither are we. an honest look at our humanness reveals this truth. Any woman who`s done a degree of self-reflection knows that her struggles, insecurities, and sins aren`t unique to her. They`re part of being human in a fallen world. Further, any woman who knows the depth of her own inadequacy will find these Christianized platitudes of beauty and "chosen-ness" entirely insufficient for daily victory.

We are not saying these encouragements are false. We are God`s handiwork (Eph. 2:10) We are chosen (1 peter 2:9). We are unique (Matt. 10:29-31). The question is not whether or not these things are true, but whether or not this is the most important message women need to hear.

We at (GBCI), don`t think it is (and we are not alone women around the world has responded to our message of hope, help, and change).

If we judged Christianity by its women`s conferences, we would be led to believe that the Bible is no more than a series of compliments from God to man. Instead, the real story is far less complimentary and far more humiliating. Jesus didn`t come to earth because we were beautiful, special, or great. He came because we were too grossly sinful to bridge the gap between ourselves and God.
