Question: In the apostlic faith, what is the dress code for women? Are they allowed to wear pants. In the book of Deuteronomy the Bible says that woman should not wear clothing that pertains to a man.

Answer: Deuteronomy 22:5 states, 'A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman's garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the LORD your God.' The issue is not what an assembly allows or does not allow a women to wear. The issue is, Who wants to be an abonination to the Lord?

The various churches of the 'apostolic faith' are not monolithic. You will find that different assemblies teach different things and have differing expectations of their members. But reguardless of what any particular church may or may not teach, the verse you have cited speaks for itself.
