Statement Of Faith:
We are a non-denominational Christian organisation. We believe in the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit.
We believe the only way to seek eternal life in heaven and have a relationship with God is through the Lord Jesus Christ and by accepting him as our saviour.
John 14:6 ESV Matthew 28:19 ESV
Application Process and our Values:
To make sure we keep our communities and directory inline with our vision, mission & values we have an application process in place.
We do a check to make sure that you’re not in an industry that isn’t suitable for the integrity of CWIBL and to protect our members. We do not accept women from businesses in the following industries: Pyramid schemes, gambling, get-rich-quick or pharmacy/quick weight loss. We also don’t allow any NLP coaches, yoga instructors, card readers or anyone or any business that we see is part of the new age.
We only invite business owners & leaders who share the same Christian values as us and who are open to a business filled with God and the Holy Spirit.
If you become a member and try to sell your products and services against our terms and conditions or if you become involved in any new age you will be asked to leave immediately from the membership.
We have the right to decline any person we believe doesn’t fit into our community.

Some Dos To Get The Most Value…

- Use your own best judgment. I don’t endorse the advice of members and you need to take your own situation into account when acting on anything mentioned in CWIBL. Business requires the advice of legal and accounting professionals. Make sure you see both when making business-related decisions.
- Christian Women in Business & Leadership has the right to reproduce and use any devotionals, information given, copy or materials added to the community and The Members Hub through the Membership, eCommerce & any online shop.
Side note: this Academy used to be called Empowering Her Business so if you see that mentioned – it was the same place as you are at right now on Christian Women in Business…

Our Business Socials are run by volunteers out of their own time and effort. We ask that you respect the time put into the Business Socials by the volunteers, if you have said you’re going please go, we find it disrespectful if members don’t commit.
