Egalitarianism in the context of the Christian church is the teaching that all people, both men and women, are to be treated as equal; and that women are to share all offices within the church equally with men. This position would hold that women could be pastors, elders, bishops, etc., and that male headship in the church and the family is invalid. Egalitarianism is an avenue of liberalism. (Compare with Complimentarianism and for more information see Women in Ministry.)
