In commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to the mission of the Church, and through the enabling of the Holy Spirit, AB Women of MA provides opportunities for each woman to:
   • Become and develop as God's person
   • Build God's faith community, and
   • Serve God's world.
Every woman—and girl—is encouraged to participate according to her own needs, interests and gifts as led by the Spirit of God.

Our ongoing ministries depend in part on the ABW Endowment Fund, which was created in 1980 to mark the 30th anniversary of AB Women’s Ministries. The endowment has grown through the years with the help of anniversary campaigns every decade. Your gifts to the Endowment Fund will ensure that vital ministries with women and girls continue into the future.
• Resources
• Leadership training
• National events
• Use of emerging technologies that reach more women and girls
• Women’s ministries that are relevant to the next generation
