CBE International

CBE International was founded by a group of individuals who determined that a national organization was needed to provide education, support, and leadership about biblical equality. Since its founding in 1988, CBE has published egalitarian resources including two award-winning quarterly publications (Priscilla Papers and Mutuality), books, curriculum, and a blog. CBE has expanded internationally to include supporters and partners from over 100 denominations and 65 countries.

CBE is a nonprofit organization of Christian men and women who believe 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.
