Atlantic Society for Biblical Equality (ASBE) is a nonprofit organization of Christians who have come together to promote the equal partnership of men and women, and of all racial and ethnic groups, in the home, the church, and the community.
Core Values: We believe the Bible teaches the equality of women and men. We believe God has given each person gifts to be used for the good of Christ’s kingdom. We believe Christians are to develop and exercise their God-given gifts in the home, the church, and the world. We believe the Bible teaches that Christians are to oppose injustice.1
Mission Statement: ASBE equips believers by affirming the biblical truth about equality and justice. Thus all believers, without regard to gender, ethnicity, and class, are free and encouraged to use their Godgiven gifts in ministries, communities, and families.1
Core Purpose: To communicate broadly the biblical truth that men and women are equally responsible to act justly and use their God-given gifts to further Christ’s kingdom.1
Envisioned Future: ASBE envisions a future where all believers will be encouraged to exercise their gifts for God’s glory and missional purposes, with the full support of their Christian communities.1
