Bethel Temple Cathedral
of Agape Christian Ministries
New Bedford, Massachusetts
THE WOMEN'S MINISTRY of Bethel Temple Cathedral centers on meeting the spiritual needs of Christian women and helping them to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ. Women's Ministry exists to serve women and teach them how to minister to others. It is action based and focuses on living a Godly life with guidance from the Bible. The primary goal is to assemble the Women of the Church to share time growing in their spiritual knowledge and love of God.
Women's Ministry dates back to Biblical times where women such as Sarah, Deborah, Ruth, Mary, and Martha had an influence on the development of the Early Church. A prominent scripture which Christians use as a Biblical precedent as to the purpose of Women's Ministry is Titus 2:3-5; "Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the Word of God will not be dishonored." Women's Ministry took root in that aspect of scripture and has grown to feed women spiritually all over the world.
Evangelist Lady Michelle Donelson, the Chairperson of the Women's Ministry of Bethel Temple Cathedral is the Bishop's Wife and, Supervisor of Women of Agape Christian Ministries International.
