Association of Welcoming & Affirming Baptists
Welcoming & Affirming All People
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.
Since 1993 AWAB has been supporting churches in being and becoming Welcoming and Affirming of all people regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.

You can help someone come home to love and acceptance today.
Become a member of the Rainbow Circle to sustain compassion in our faith communities.
