terms & conditions

Terms and conditions of using the Christian Women in Business Directory, Community & Academy.

Statement Of Faith:

We are a none denominational Christian organisation. We believe in the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit.

Application Process and our Values:

To make sure we keep our community and directory Holy and one that’s worth joining we review every application to join.

We do a check to make sure that you’re not in any industry that isn’t suitable to the integrity of CWIB 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 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.

  • 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 CWIB. Business requires the advice of legal and accounting professionals. Make sure you see both when making business-related decisions.

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…
