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.

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

The ministries of the Baptist World Alliance have made and are making a difference in the world. What's cool about that statement is that it's true…not an exaggeration…when it comes to making a world-wide impact in the lives of people from all walks of life and from all areas of the world. That's why they are called the Baptist World Alliance! I have had the opportunity to witness this organization working and serving for the last 25 years of my adult life. I have experienced personal growth and a deeper understanding of the world in which I live while attending their conferences, serving on their committees, reading their publications, talking to people who have been directly impacted by their ministries and praying for the staff and the ministering bodies committed to realizing that "together we can do more!" I thank God daily for the work and ministry of the Baptist World Alliance.

The Baptist World Alliance helps to keep the public informed of the tremendous needs that exist among people around the world. I've been aware of their work for some 30 plus years and I have found that their efforts to bring about unity among people so that human efforts to assist others can be more effective have been both inspiring and encouraging. I have noticed that Presidents, world leaders and people of all backgrounds have joined them in these efforts to "do good to all people".

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I pray that people at the local level will become more aware and involved in their outreach. I would encourage BWA to do more to initiate local Chapters of their organization!

BWA's youth programs have influenced young people in my church for years. We also give to them for emergency relief, because we know the money will get to people who need it. I like that they work through local churches in every country.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing.
