Global Impact Churches
What is a Global Impact Church?
A local congregation that invests and participates in the Baptist World Alliance for the common work of Baptists, making an impact on the world for Christ. We want you to join the largest and most dynamic network of Baptists in the world.
Why become a Global Impact Church?
The Baptist World Alliance amplifies the impact of Baptists through networking conventions, unions, churches, and other Baptist entities. The Global Impact Church Network offers a path for individual churches to connect with the global Baptist family. We want to serve as a mission partner for your church family, along with helping you establish new connections to the global Baptist family.
How to become a Global Impact Church?
Your church’s financial gift to the BWA supports the world’s largest Baptist network and the work done by Baptists around the globe. A gift of any size each year allows you to have a global impact by supporting work such as evangelism training, advocating for religious freedom, mobilizing aid during disasters, and training for church leaders.
Encourage your church members to sign up for the “One in Prayer” weekly updates and periodic news updates to pray for Baptists throughout the world. Lead your church to pray regularly for specific issues and Baptist groups.
PARTICIPATION & CONNECTION:
Attend the meetings of the BWA and connect with Baptists throughout the world. As a leader, attend your regional gathering, global Annual Gathering, and the World Congress. Help your church connect with Baptists in other regions through strategic missional partnerships. Engage in one or more of the BWA five core ministry areas.
Serve on a BWA committee or commission to broaden your impact in the world. You and your church leaders can support and equip other Baptist groups through leadership development, encouragement, and training. Connect with other pastors in your area and encourage them to join you in the work of the BWA.
