The MBA churches, ministers, and laity are united in a covenantal relationship to proclaim a gospel of reconciliation, to promote a fellowship of mutual concern and commitment, to strengthen our witness and outreach, to invoke and to exemplify the abiding, creative, loving, and transforming spirit of Jesus Christ.  Thirty seven churches are open and affirming.  The MBA is integrally interconnected with the City Mission Society whose programs include crisis relief, issue advocacy, after-school enrichment, and prison outreach.  The Association also values its connections and relations with the United Church of Christ, Andover Newton Theological School, Seafarer’s Friends, the American Congregational Association, the Massachusetts Council of Churches, and the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization.

The Association is committed to nurture and to challenge its many candidates for authorized ministry; to support churches and pastors in conflict or transition; to seek greater cooperation and cohesion in the midst of autonomy and separateness; to witness on behalf of open and affirming covenants; to grow spiritually and numerically; to implement new visions for leadership development, evangelism with justice, ministries to younger adults,  and engagement in social media to make God’s love and justice real.
