The Free Methodist denomination agrees with your beliefs on both points. Women have been ordained, and eligible to lead a congregation, for over a century. In fact my own (southwestern Pennsylvania) congregation was pastored by the Reverend Laura Lamb in 1915-16. Free Methodist pastor B.T. Roberts wrote an entire book (published in 1891) examining the ...

Which Christian denominations believe Jesus is buried in Japan? The short answer is that no Christian denomination believe in this myth.

The French philosopher Simone Weil was a neo-Cathar. She wrote a letter circa 1940 in which "she spoke of her admiration for the Catharist movement and used the word adherence as opposed to curiosity" (Joseph Marie Perrin, O.P., Simone Weil As We Knew Her pt. 1, ch. 6, fn. 2). Like the Cathars, Weil rejected the Old Testament, The Cathars rejected the ...

There are quite a few denominations that believe that the literal 7 days of creation occurred only a few thousand years ago, while also believeing that the universe itself was created billions of years earlier. Many of them have "Church of God" in their names, such as: United Church of God, Living Church of God, Restored Church of God, Philadelphia Church ...
