Word of Faith Movement

The Word of Faith Movement (also known as Word-Faith or simply Faith Movement) is a popular, diverse subculture within the Christian Church.

It is primarily known for its emphasis on the pursuit of health and especially wealth (the so-called "Prosperity Gospel").

The movement's teachers claim that both can be obtained through "positive confession" and/or "acts of faith" -- more often than not donating money to those teachers, or by throwing away medicines.

Women in Christian Ministry

Are women allowed to teach or pastor other Christians? There is disagreement between, and within, denominations.

Viewpoints include the Traditional or Complementarian view, the Egalitarian view, and the Developing Egalitarian view.
