Why the Baptist World Alliance is important to N.C. Baptists

By Richard Brunson
Director, N.C. Baptist Men

I have been involved with the Baptist World Alliance (BWA) for many years. I have served on the Baptist World Aid committee for the past 8 years and have personally seen the great work of the BWA.

The BWA is very important to North Carolina Baptists. It was through the BWA that NC Baptist Men got a request to help Polish Baptists with an agricultural project back in 1985. That project directly led to our partnership with Polish Baptists.

Our partnership with Polish Baptists led to our partnership with Ukrainian Baptists and other partnerships. Because of the Baptist World Alliance, North Carolina Baptists have had mission projects with Baptists in Russia (Bibles for Russia), Croatia, Bosnia, Mozambique and other places.

Last month I traveled to Cuba with Denton Lotz, general secretary of the Baptist World Alliance, to explore some possible mission projects with Cuban Baptists. We met with all four Cuban Baptist Conventions.

All four Cuba Baptist Convention Presidents and general secretaries were in the same room talking about missions, evangelism and church growth in Cuba. They were excited as they were sharing with each other what God is doing in Cuba. There was a spirit of unity, cooperation and friendship among them as they shared with us.

Denton asked the leaders when the last time was that they had been together. They told us that the last time that they were together was the last BWA meeting two years ago.

We do belong together because we do belong to Christ. Thank you Baptist World Alliance for your great work and witness for Jesus Christ.
