Three reasons why I am a member and enthusiastic supporter of CBE are: (1) the trajectory of biblical theology is clearly in the direction of full equality for women and men; (2) the emphasis of CBE is as much on godly living for women and men personally and in the home as on freedom to serve in the church; (3) the burden of CBE leadership is for international as well as national ministry.  I have been a member of CBE from its inception, and because this ministry is biblical, balanced and global I will continue to support CBE through prayer, finances and word-of-mouth.
