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 (BWA) is a global organization that connects more than 160 Baptist denominations and national organizations around the world and coordinates education, ministry and missions activities. The BWA also provides disaster relief through its national member organizations in response to crises around the world and it organizes a regular series of conferences and forums that encourage interaction and unity between member organizations.
I have interacted with the BWA staff at its world headquarters in Falls Church, VA and found them to be extraordinary in their professionalism and dedication to their organizational mission and administrative responsibilities. The BWA is an extremely efficient and effective organization that helps greatly to connect, coordinate and support national Baptist groups around the world.
Thanks so much for your kind words about the staff and our ministries! We are so grateful to be part of this ministry and to have a small part in the work of Christ's Kingdom around the world. Your support is what makes this possible.
A very vibrant nonprofit. I am so proud of their response in time of catastrophic events throughout the world - the BWA does not wait for member churches to send the help; they forge forward to help those in need while asking everyone to join together and assist. They are willing and faithful.
Thanks so much for your support! We are grateful you are part of this dynamic movement of Baptists!
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.
So honored to work with you to help change the world!
Has integrity, global understanding of needs, and excellent leadership.
We thank you for your continued support. Thanks to you we are able to continue to equip the global Baptist family to carry out its global mission.
The Baptist World Alliance has been a strong component of my ministry for many years. As Associate Pastor at Calvary Hill Baptist Church, the BWA has helped to shape our understanding of mission and evangelism on the world wide stage. Through the organization I am given opportunity to learn from church leaders throughout the world. Another arm of the BWA is Baptist World Aid where individuals and local congregations can help those throughout the world who are victims of natural disasters and war. I appreciate the hands on approach that BWAid has. Long may the Baptist World Alliance be a voice for Baptists around the world.
We are so grateful for churches like Calvary Hill! thanks for your partnership and faithfulness!
The BWA is truly a global organization sharing the Good News,not just espousing to to be "global". It provides opportunities to learn, serve, grow and connect cross-culturally under one Triune Lord. It is a place to call home for many Baptists and Baptistic Christians around the world.
Thanks for making the Baptist World Alliance your "home!"
The BWA provides opportunities for Christians, mostly Baptists, around the world to unite in ministry of word and deed. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the member bodies work together for the good of God's Kingdom on earth as we serve in unity through Jesus Christ our Lord. Financial accountability and transparency is a strength. Inclusion of people across culture, age, socioeconomics, and gender is keenly observed. This is truly an organization for global Christians and where I have found a Baptist home!
I am the Pastor of a small church in South Arlington, Virginia. Tragedy struck members of our community as fire destroyed a portion of an apartment building in our neighborhood - they sought help from the church. Our resources are very limited and it was simply amazing to experience the manner in which the BWA came alongside us to assist those in need. They did not seek the credit or applause, they worked with this church to help make an impact. The recipients were extremely grateful and we passed the comments on to the BWA. We are truly grateful to have had the privilege to work with members of this organization.
We are honored to be your partners in the work of the Kingdom!
The impact of the Baptist World Alliance is immeasurable. Not only does the money help those in greatest need around the world, but the people who comprise the membership are completely devoted to the Savior whose Kingdom they serve. The staff is likewise committed to do Kingdom work to bring relief and justice to those in greatest need throughout the world.
Thanks so much for your partnership and dedication!
The Baptist World Alliance is an excellent organization and the key way I feel my gifts reach the two-thirds world. When I give to the BWA, I know the money is being well spent, and carefully accounted for. Plus, I know that they have so many Baptist groups around the world, they can get local help to people right away, without having to create a new infrastructure to help. For example, in Haiti, I know they provided aid though Baptists groups, including Haitian Baptists, so the aid helped in two ways - those affected by disaster, and those who were working to help others.
I especially appreciate that the BWA is involved in freedom and justice issues. There is no other world voice for Baptists to use to speak out against injustice - there are national groups, but only the BWA has the world stage at the United Nations, where real differences can be made at the international level. I am sure they have helped win the release of persecuted Christians by the attention they can bring to situations. For me, this is a key reason to support their work.
Your support is critical to our work. Thanks for all you do for the global Baptist family!
When I give to BWA, I know I am making a difference to Baptists all over the world, through ensuring freedom to worship, supporting missionaries in the field and aiding Baptists affected by natural disasters, just to name a few. BWA communications keep me informed about relevant news affecting Baptists worldwide through print and online sources. My home church supports BWA and that is how I first learned of this important organization. I've been involved with BWA my whole life.
