The Baptist World Alliance is a strong voice for the love of Jesus Christ around the world, and I know of no other organization that does what it does. In times of crisis, it helps the local church reach out to its neighbors. In times of oppression, it speaks out strongly for those who are persecuted. Its worldwide meetings are evidence that we can all get along in our diversity because we belong to God before we belong to tribe or country. They have made me aware that we are one family - Baptists in the larger Christian church - all around the world. Baptists in Israel, in Ghana, in Argentina and in Vietnam - we are all God's. I gladly send my support to an organization so trustworthy. Thank you BWA!

My missionary aunt strongly supported the BWA and personally introduced me to it as a teen, by helping to sponsor a cousin and me for an international trip to attend one of their worldwide youth meetings. She also brought a team of youth from her mission field church. I saw a multitude of teens from all across the world gathered to worship the Lord in one accord. It was a little preview of Heaven!

Again, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Baptist World Alliance did not only prayed for its worldwide members but organized worship sessions, zoom meets and sent monetary relief to worldwide members. The Baptist World Alliance during the Black Lives Matters worldwide protest spoke up against racism with a slogan "Baptist Against Racism". This body also ensures that its members worldwide are well-connected to local leaders.
And the most amazing thing about this organization is that its current CEO and General Secretary Rev. Dr. Elijah Brown, busy as how he is, finds the time to answer individual emails.
In short, BWA is an amazing organization.

The BWA, Baptist world alliance, has their ear to the ground in every country. It is their heart to help in any physical or spiritual way. It is their great hope that in every country all peoples may worship in freedom. They strive to work in any campaign to free any captive that has been imprisoned or hurt because of their religious beliefs. I am so thankful that the BWA is such a model of love in this world.

I have not seen a religious body like the Baptist World Alliance who so much believes in transparency and accountability. The emphasis on stewardship accounting is second to none. Since I became a regular attendee at meetings, seven years ago, reporting channels on all facets of responsibilities have been model for others to emulate. Every year, financials are reported and presented to all members of the Executives and the General councils. Approvals are given for budgets as prepared by the management team for the smooth running of operations . In my own opinion, the Baptist World body has kept to the Traditions of their fore fathers who believed so much in congregational polity and accountability. Everyone is involved in the management of financial resources and church affairs. I commend the Baptist World body for purposeful leadership. Thanks. Moses Babatunde ADEBAYO.

The Baptist World Alliance is an organisation that depicts excellence and integrity with doses of compassion towards every one they serve around the world irrespective of faith or creed. Recently through Baptist World Aid they served 240 families in the Prey Veng and Kompot provinces in Cambodia. They distributed bags of rice to families at a time when the community was threatened with acute food shortage. They often serve in places forgotten by the global media, but always keen to send a message of hope and love to people in desperate need. I salute the staff, leadership team and donors of BWA for making the world a better place for millions of people over the years through their diligence, generosity and care for vulnerable people around the world.

The Baptist World Alliance® (BWA) is observing October as World Hunger Emphasis Month.
It is one of the few organizations that do not spiritualize issues. Where there is the issue of injustice, it addresses it. Where there is the issue of poverty, it addresses it. Where there is the issue of hunger, it never said, "Go, may the Lord bless you." Instead, it gets involved and engages tangibly, affecting the lives of its members and non-members around the world.

Therefore, once again, I am supporting this organization wholeheartedly.
Rev.Dr.Neville Callam, former General Secretary did an excellent job in these areas mentioned. And Rev. Dr.Elijah Brown is doing an excellent job.

I say, support the Baptist World Alliance in prayer and financial gifts.

BWA is an organization that connects people from all walks of lives. It is a body that recognizes young talents and potentials and help pursue their goals. It is through the BWA platform that my leadership skills were develop and my network with the global Baptist arena grew. I have seen the BWA invest in the lives of many young and old lives in different capacities for which with no doubt and hesitation, I can proudly say the BWA therefore has produced some of the finest global leaders and continues to do so. An organization with such a clear commitment to invest in creating some of the finest global leaders sure deserve recognition and applaud.

I am a Baptist and have been participating in BWA activities since 2006.

The Baptist World Alliance (BWA) gathers Baptist churches from all over the world to pursue its mission of “networking the Baptist family to impact the world for Christ” with uncommon zeal and dedication. Through its work with Baptist men, women and youth, it provides a platform to strengthen the bonds of fellowship in Jesus Christ across gender, racial, ethnic and social lines.
Through its “Baptist Aid” program, it has been a consistent source of succor and relief to disaster victims in different parts of the world irrespective of their ethnicity, nationality or religion. The work of The Division on Mission, Evangelism and Justice is invaluable, as it continues to serve as faithful beacons of Christ’s light and love to a lost and hurting world. Every year, the Baptist World Alliance recognizes, through an award, exceptional individual contribution to global social justice. The presentation is made during its annual gathering programme.
BWA depends mainly on resources that God provides through donations and contributions from churches and well-meaning individuals to run its activities.
I am confident that in the years to come, BWA will continue to serve as a unifying force not only for the Baptist churches, but also for the body of Christ in general and all those who seek inner peace with God and justice

I have known and been associated one way or the other way with BWA for the past 20 years. Through the years I have witnessed how BWA has been instrumental in bringing people from all corners of the world, different ethnicities, culture or background to a common platform extending its ministries through its work of justice, mission, evangelism, leadership; able to meet the vast areas of people in need through aid and development. I have been blessed by its advocacy to justice and human rights. Aside the notable work of BWA as an organization, most remarkable are its leaders whose compassion encompass the very heart of BWA. With the spirit of humbleness BWA's leaders remain committed to serve God to fulfill the mission of God. Through the years I have observed BWA has served its constituencies with the highest degree of transparency, both in leadership and financial accountability.

The Baptist World Alliance (BWA) is an organization like none other. It does a great job in providing opportunities for partnerships, networking and empowerment of people across the world. Its reach has no boundaries.
I am particularly grateful to the BWA for identifying and harnessing my leadership potential. BWA recognizes the need to invest in youth and young adults and there is space around the table for all regardless of age, social location, gender or race.
I have been particularly impressed with the BWA'S commitment to issues of justice and human rights. I attend the gatherings every year as I look forward to the empowering experiences as well as hearing the stories of how the work and donations of BWA are transforming the lives of many who would otherwise go unnoticed.

Baptist World Alliance (BWA) is a body seeking to support the global Baptist movement in all our areas of ministry and mission. This covers more than 230 national and regional conventions and unions across the world, and represents upwards of 50 million Baptist church participants. My particular field of focus is international relief and development and social and economic justice. BWA has a rich history, particularly through BWAid and the development and relief arms across many member bodies globally, reaching people in the most vulnerable regions and communities of the world, to help them transform sustainably out of poverty and recover from disasters. Across members bodies more than US$20 million has been expended in these efforts in the past year. BWA has transformed its leadership, with a highly-skilled General Secretary and representative Executive body, seeking to be attuned and take action on many areas - equipping churches and communities, theological education, peace-building, cross-denominational dialogue and collaboration, advocacy on religious freedom and social justice. The BWA draws on talented people across its network globally, working together to serve our global community, but also to offer hope and value as Baptists to people of all faiths and backgrounds across the world.

My involvement with Baptist World Alliance goes back almost thirty years, in which time I have never been disappointed with its mission, its administration, its integrity, or its financial responsibility. The ethos of the BWA is warm, fellowship-oriented, honorable, with transparency in finances and decision-making, principled accountability, careful planning, thoughtful collaboration, and a sincere and conscientious inclusion of all voices at the table. There is respect here.
Across the years, I have seen its administration change with new leadership, its goals refined to meet new challenges, and its organizational patterns become more efficient. Through it all, the BWA has remained constantly committed to self-disclosure, to accountability both to and for its constituencies, and to engage and serve others in the various ministries associated with this fine organization.
This is one place where I feel I am a part of something much grander than myself and my circles, and it is a privilege to be associated, and to walk life's journey, with these people. The BWA is not just an organization. It is a collection of wonderful, caring volunteers, working like a loving and honest family, who join together with one purpose - to bring the Peace of Christ to the world.

There are many posts highlighting the work of the BWA in the world. I had the opportunity to work for this amazing organization a few years ago. I want to emphasize how very few people are paid to administer the work and how dedicated, committed, and focused they are. These folks assist local churches and community based ministries in many countries to improve the lives of people all over the world. When you donate to the BWA your money is not used to provide the perks so common in some large faith based organizations. The lions share goes to support the important work the BWA is facilitating all over the world.

I write from the beautiful island of Grenada, under the Grenada Baptist Association.
I believe the Baptist World Alliance has been kind to the Grenada Baptist years before we became a member of this body.
The General Secretary, Rev'd Dr. Neville Callam together with Eron Henry (BWA Communications) took the time to work with us, showing a love that few organizations have showed to our small body.
Since we (the Grenada Baptist Association) have become members in 2016, we continue to be treated with respect, all our questions have been answered with efficiency and effectiveness, and our body feels that we are truly part of this family of churches.
We love the Baptist World Alliance.

The Baptist World Alliance has been instrumental in bridging the divide that often happens between people who share the same faith. It is a unifier that focuses on what is essential and should be most important to Christians everywhere - "Jesus, the door." In my experience with the BWA, I have seen them consistently exhibit mercy, grace, and determination to show God's love to the world. This nonprofit is truly critical to unite Baptists everywhere and be the hands and feet of Jesus.

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.

Our family has had contact with the Baptist Word Alliance since the late 1930s when my mother and family members attended the BWA Congress in Atlanta, Georgia. Through the years the family has tried to keep abreast of the work the BWA has done and how it has helped bind like-thinking groups together to promote the Lord's work throughout the world.

In 1943, I heard Dr. Rushbrooke, president of the BWA, who was at a Southern Baptist Student retreat at Ridgecrest, NC. Since then I have cherished the page from my Bible where he gave me his signature.

My husband's parents attended the Congress in Rio in the 1950s, and my husband and I have attended the Congresses in Toronto, Hawaii, and in England, enjoying the fellowship of Baptists from around the world.

It was especially great to be able to speak personally with Dr. Callam and his wife as they attended a Texas Baptist meeting two or three years ago in Waco, and to feel their genuine interest in and concern about people all around the world.

We are grateful for the leadership the BWA has exercised through the years, and pray that it may continue helping Christians share the Gospel with people everywhere who need the Lord so badly.

This network of Baptists from all nations provides important opportunities for interchange and for idea-sharing as those who follow Christ and seek to live out Baptist principles such as the need for all persons to know Jesus Christ personally and to be born again into a relationship with God, freedom of conscience, the Lordship of Christ, the importance of a believer's church, and the separation of church and state.

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.

Though I am a journalist but not a Baptist, I have seen, in many counties across the world, the results of courageous and competent outreach of Baptist missionaries as patient and loving teachers of literacy, health care and agriculture amongst primitive peoples, over decades of devotion. The results are increasingly apparent in remote regions of the 'developing world where Baptist missionaries have respected the distinct language and indigenous culture of tribal peoples. They have also been courageous defenders of human rights in defending and protecting such peoples from corporate and/or corrupt exploitation. They deserve our respect, informed admiration and support.

The great thing about the Baptist World Alliance is that intentionally it is inclusive: of women and men, people from every part of the world, and continually seeking opportunities for dialogue with people of different faiths. The BWA has a really strong focus on human rights, freedom of conscience and active (that means real dollars, boots on the ground) aid in situations of crisis and need, together with the long-term work of building up local communities and leaders. It's a community that exists for service: not just of its own, but for the world. In short, it really does follow the way of Jesus Christ.

I have been well acquainted with the work of the Baptist World Alliance since my teen years in the 70's when I became fascinated with the report of an older church member who attended a BWA world conference at that time. She returned to our church in the Midwest a changed person, and her enthusiasm made a strong impression on me, decades younger than this traveler.
Since then, I have seen firsthand the impact the BWA has on lives from developing countries. I have witnessed the dedication of its staff and volunteer officers. I have learned that the faith of those different than I can strengthen and expand my faith. Perhaps most importantly, I have seen an organization from the inside that is transparent, effective, and able to reach corners of this globe that no other global organization has managed to do. I commend this nonprofit organization as one that needs to be increasingly noticed, championed, and used by those within and beyond Baptist arenas.
My church in Maryland sends all of its disaster relief support through Baptist World Aid with the confidence that it will be well used by those who need it most in the most desperate areas around the world.

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!
