Our Vision


Jesus calls us to care for those who are hungry and thirsty, to welcome those who are strangers in a new land and to offer help to those living on the margins (Matthew 25:35-40).

And so we dream of a world where poverty has ended and all people enjoy fullness of life as God intends.

But we don’t dream or act or pray alone. Together with God’s people, we join Jesus in caring for vulnerable communities around the world.

Our Mission


Baptist World Aid Australia is a Christian aid and development organisation working with 35 local Christian partner organisations implementing 68 projects in 22 countries.

Baptist World Aid helps Australians tackle the injustice of global poverty and act together in ending it.

We partner with like-minded agencies overseas to empower communities as they emerge from poverty, challenge injustice and build resilience together.

We partner with Christians and churches in Australia, particularly those from the Baptist movement, in faithful prayer, ethical consumption, generous giving, and courageous advocacy as together we follow Jesus to end poverty so all can enjoy fullness of life as God intends.


Our Approach

As a Christ-centred aid and development organisation, our reading of the Christian Scriptures and current developmental theory inform and guide our practices as we work with local Christian Partners.
