Rainbow Baptists

A Welcoming & Inclusive Place for All Christians

Celebrating 30 Years of Ministry

Local American Baptists Concerned and AWAB Groups

    The regional and local chapters listed here have a variety of focuses from Bible studies and retreats, to being politically active in regional or denominational politics.  Please contact the local chapters for information on group activities or visit their web pages when available.

     A roll of the Association of Welcoming & Affirming Baptists is to provide support and advocacy for sexual minority Baptists, family and friends.  AWAB is an organization of churches and individuals who are inclusive and affirming regardless of sexual orientation. The organization provides support for Baptists who are "out," those who are in the closet and those that are seeking information and answers. Friends and family members of LGBT people are also invited to join in activities.
