The Baptist World Alliance (BWA) mission is expressed in broad ministries and distilled into effective programs. The BWA promotes Baptist unity throughout the world such as at Annual Gatherings, evangelism and training conferences, and in Congresses, held every five years. (BWA's Baptist Family Celebration 2020 will be in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.) The BWA resources churches in evangelism training around the world through conferences providing resources for each local organization that participates. The BWA remains faithful to Baptist principles regarding human rights and religious freedom by helping people who suffer from injustice. Our consultative status before the United Nations gives us a voice for the oppressed of all races and religions. The BWA responds to people in need through its relief and development arm, working to prevent hunger and sickness through support of ongoing educational, agricultural and medical programs. The BWA has ongoing development programs in dozens of countries. The BWA promotes relevant theological reflection through study groups, exchanges with other expressions of the Christian faith, and meetings of scholars and theologians who collaborate to address the issues of today and express Baptist perspectives on those matters.

The Baptist World Alliance is cause for Baptists across the globe to celebrate our unity within our diversity. As a denominational staff-leader, I appreciate how the BWA is able to connect our regional body with others around the world as co-servants with Christ. We are grateful for this network to the world, linking us hand-in-hand for the Good News.

The Baptist World Alliance has:

Provided introduction to the most dynamic, remarkable, faithful people I've ever known;
Allowed an intimate window on the world of what God can do, even in difficult circumstances; and,
Taught me that the ultimate, essential Gospel of Jesus Christ goes anywhere and everywhere.

In short, they make me happy and proud to be a part of the Baptist Christian family!

We are pleased to support the Baptist World Alliance and the global mission this organization pursues. Our church budgets annual mission support for the BWA, and we also support BWA as part of our own monthly giving to Christian causes. The BWA is commended for transparency and faithfulness to the mission of Baptists worldwide.

Our church supports the Baptist World Alliance and its humanitarian program, Baptist World Aid, because we trust its leaders and their partners around the world. The BWA is characterized by respect, compassion, effectiveness, accountability, and integrity. Especially for those who feel marginalized or powerless, the BWA offers meaningful connections with a larger family of faith, practical help, and hope.

Our church receives an annual offering for world hunger which we send to Baptist World Aid, the relief and development agency of the Baptist World Alliance. Our gifts are used to respond to humanitarian crises following natural disasters, civil unrest, and other situations of great need. We have confidence that our donations are used efficiently and conscientiously to alleviate suffering and provide practical help. Because the Baptist World Alliance has trusted member organizations and partners in over 120 countries around the world, there is a minimum of overhead and a maximum of cooperation.

The Baptist World Alliance is my favorite charity and I am happy to help others through them. I know they inspire and uplift people at their meetings, especially their Congress, and I have experienced first-hand what it is like to be in a Baptist worship with people from 10, 20, 30 or more countries, and all of us singing the same hymn in our own language! This is the only organization I trust for relief and development work overseas, because they work through Baptist churches whenever they can. I am happy to continue to support the BWA!
