Location: 405 N Washington St Falls Church VA 22046 USA

Mission: Networking the Baptist family to impact the world for Christ.
Results: 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.
Target demographics: the wider communities where our 232 member conventions, churches and institutions reside, and to equip them in their desire to faithfully participate in God's purpose to reconcile all things to God's self in Christ Jesus.
Geographic areas served: 121 countries and territories in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, North America
Programs: evangelism, relief and development, human rights and religious freedom, theological reflection and worldwide fellowship.

The Baptist World Alliance is a friendly, open organization dedicated to helping connect Baptists and work for freedom and justice issues around the world. I've enjoyed membership through our church and am always impressed with BWA personnel and other members with whom I've been able to connect.
