The role of female domestic workers (FDWs) in the modern world cannot be belittled. The female domestic workers are the forces behind successful homes through the performance of the household chores. In this modern economy, families require domestic workers (DWs) to assist in household chores. The Bible gives some guidance and principles on how the employer and employee, both of whom share a common humanity, should relate with each other. This study looked at the common social teachings of the mainstream churches on the handling of female domestic workers in Roysambu constituency. The study showed that there are common social teachings of the mainline churches such as justice for all. The findings revealed that despite the major contribution of FDWs to the growth of families, they face numerous challenges resulting to their high turnover rate thus destabilizing the career and other pursuance of Christian employers. The target population was composed of all Christians within the five selected mainstream churches in Roysambu Constituency and a combination of stratified and random sampling techniques were used to get a sample of 144 participants from an approximate population of 1400 Christians. The study utilized interviews, questionnaires and library research to collect data. The data was analysed through qualitative descriptive statistics to draw findings, conclusions and recommendations. The study concluded that the mainstream churches have written and produced common social teachings that are similar to the Christian Principles
