We represent scholars, students, pastors, and laypersons from varied denominations who believe that the inerrant Word of God teaches the full equality of men and women in creation and in redemption. We gather together to discuss the biblical basis for equality and encourage one another to develop leadership skills and spiritual gifts for the purpose of building up the body of Christ.
We seek to empower all people, regardless of race, gender, or social status to use their gifts for kingdom building. We envision a future where all believers are free to exercise their gifts for God's glory and purposes, with the full support of their Christian communities.
We gather to share our non-hierarchical complementary (egalitarian) beliefs, stimulate increased learning and study, and discuss interdisciplinary topics related to gender equality and justice in the home, church, and the world. We invite others to study the biblical text, participate in deep dignified dialogue, attend lectures and presentations, and partake of the resources provided. We do not dictate that you agree with our position, only that you remain open and respectful in the conversation. There is room for you at the table.
Our mission is that of CBE International's: CBE exists to promote the biblical message that God calls women and men of all cultures, races, and classes to share authority equally in service and leadership in the home, church, and world. CBE's mission is to eliminate the power imbalance between men and women resulting from theological patriarchy.
