The purpose of Ratas as a NGO is to promote interpretation of the Bible from a basis of equal value of all people. The word in Finnish standing for “equality” is “tasa-arvo”, which directly translated means “equal-value”. Our desire is to live out “equal value” in families, churches and communities. The goal is to be set free from the unjust and restrictive views of what a woman and a man is supposed to be, so that we could freely use our gifts. We also support the spreading of the gospel based on equal value of women and men and we work towards justice in the society.
The values of RaTas are based on the view of the Bible as God’s revelation to the humans. Based on that we believe that God gives his gifts and his tasks regardless of the gender Arvot
RaTas shares the values with Christians for Biblical Equality.
