CBE members are extraordinary advocates for Christ's liberation from human limitations imposed by gender, ethnicity, or class. The overwhelming majority of CBE members tell us that passion for the cause compelled them to join our organization. (Read more about the impact of CBE on the lives of members.)
By joining CBE, you stand with Christians around the world who promote the biblical truth of equality as a community. As a member you receive cutting-edge resources on what the Bible says about gender and justice. And your dues support and sustain our ministry!

E-members join CBE at a low cost ($28 a year) and do not receive print versions of our publications. Instead, they access PDF issues of Mutuality and Priscilla Papers at their convenience on our members only webpage. E-members receive a password and correspondence from CBE exclusively through email, so e-members are required to provide a working email address. All other member benefits apply to e-members.
Please note that PDF issues are not emailed to e-members when the issues become available; e-memberships are entirely self-directed.
To join CBE as an e-member, simply visit the membership page at CBE Bookstore and select the "E-Membership" product. Once you've checked out, your membership will be processed the next business day.
Yes! CBE has many supportive donors who help provide funds for those who cannot afford to pay for their membership. Please fill out a scholarship application form and return it to us by mail, fax, or email. All scholarships will be distributed according to need and desire.
CBE offers an automatic renewal program, designed to make membership more convenient for dedicated CBE friends like you.
Automatic renewals save postage, paper, and time, and ensure that you will never miss an issue of our publications. You are welcome to cancel at any time. And your automatic renewal helps CBE better plan for the future, knowing we can count on your annual support through membership!

- Online: Simply write “Sign me up for automatic member renewals” in the comments section of your CBE Bookstore order. CBE will keep your provided membership customization and payment information on file.
