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 238 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.

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!

The strength of the Baptist World Alliance is in the membership that is spread throughout all the continents of the world. This is evident in how the BWA repond and reach out to those in need. Recently when Ebola virus was spreading in West African countries the BWA was able to send out the message to its constituency and help was immediately send to those who were affected. Our story is that there is no beaurocracy or redtape it is a ministry to the world. Baptist World Alliance always seek to work with people on the ground.

The Baptist World Alliance is an organization that has a global network to assist Christians in the expansion of God's Kingdom. The network has been very effective in providing assistance during a time of disaster. The recovery and relief efforts give the people hope as a face the future. Meeting physical needs and building relationships have been helpful in the evangelistic efforts of the organization.
