We are so glad you have found us!
This is a safe space for you to discover who we are, what we are doing, and how you can get involved. We know that there are lots of welcoming communities across the internet that will help people seeking an inclusive congregation. However, as the only organization solely devoted to building the Welcoming and Affirming movement within the Baptist traditions, AWAB has a unique call to be The National Voice for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Allied Baptists in the US, and to support the work of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists around the world.
Since 1993 AWAB has been supporting churches in being and becoming Welcoming and Affirming of all people regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. We work as individuals, congregations, regional groupings and as a national body to advance the Radical Welcome and Love of God in Jesus Christ through being the Ministry of Reconciliation and building up the Beloved Community where all will be one.
