Covenant on Intra-Baptist Relationships

Principles and Guidelines for Intra-Baptist Relationships, prepared by the Special Commission on Intra-Baptist Relations, aims to provide a framework for BWA’s response to the diversity of language, culture, opinions and perspectives in meetings and in the various operations of the international body. The document takes into account the great diversity that exists among Baptists, particularly within the BWA, which has more than 200 member organizations in over 100 countries. It was ratified unanimously by the General Council in Ocho Rios, Jamaica July 2013.
