CBE International is dedicated to reclaiming God’s design for equal partnership between men and women. Since its founding in 1988, CBE has published egalitarian resources including two award-winning quarterly journals (Priscilla Papers and Mutuality), books, curriculum, and a blog. CBE is a 501c(3) nonprofit with supporters and ministry partners from over 100 denominations and 65 countries.

The CBE community believes that the Bible, properly interpreted, teaches the fundamental equality of men and women of all ethnic groups, all economic classes, and all age groups, based on the teachings of Scriptures such as Galatians 3:28. CBE promotes 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.
