Women’s Veil

The Women’s Veil and Honor in Worship

The World Mission Society Church of God emphasizes the importance of women wearing veils during worship, following the biblical teaching passed down by Apostle Paul from Christ.

“Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ ... But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head.”

1 Corinthians 11:1–4

God established specific regulations for worship, and adherence to these guidelines brings spiritual benefits and blessings to the worshipper (Lev 18:4–5).

Apostle Paul instructed the Early Church on how to show reverence to God during worship as mentioned above; a man honors God by not covering his head, while a woman honors God by covering her head. Consequently, women in the Church of God consistently wear veils when engaging in worship or prayer as an expression of this teaching.
