I am in our church choir and I am singing with the Tenor section. Someone told me that a tenor is higher than a soprano. The part I sing is lower than an alto but higher than bass. What is correct?

Voices can cross so that the tenor line might ,in fact, be higher than the alto line. Probably not the soprano, though. I would not think it would be common.
I suppose it is probable that notes for tenor might be higher in the vocal range of the male voice than notes in the soprano voice of a female. Harmonically the soprano is the highest (melody) voice.
Let me clarify. The vocal ranges go from bass (lowest), to tenor, to alto,to soprano (highest).

A tenor may sing the soprano part, but it is in a lower octave. During practice, while we're waiting to rehearse our parts, I sing the soprano parts, but in the lower octave, unless I switch to falsetto, for the higher notes.
I am a fragment of my imagination
