Baptist World Alliance, BWA News Release

BWA launches new website

Baptist World Alliance Logo

A newly redesigned website for the Baptist World Alliance is now online. The site officially went live on May 11 with a new interface.

The website features new elements and easier access for users.  It will create savings for the BWA making it unnecessary to create special websites for major events, such as the Baptist Youth World Conference in Singapore in 2013 and the Baptist World Congress in Durban, South Africa, in 2015.

Donations through the website are now easier and simpler for those who wish to offer financial gifts to the BWA online.

A blog by General Secretary Neville Callam is one of the new features. Readers are encouraged to submit comments on the blog.

Space is provided for news, information and articles in other languages. BWA member Baptist conventions and unions are encouraged to submit relevant information for this segment of the website.

Other features include a Find a Church map that allows those planning a visit to another country to find a church for worship while traveling.  BWA member organizations are encouraged to submit lists of their churches to be included in the Find a Church database. An interactive map of all BWA member bodies is also available on the site.

The Baptist World Alliance mobile app for iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android devices is also available and can be downloaded here free of cost.

The newly redesigned website can be viewed at
