The Baptist World Alliance is an international fellowship of Baptist conventions and organizations. Founded in 1905, the BWA is one of the largest Baptist organizations in the world.[1] The current President of the Alliance is Neville Callam, who was elected in 2007 at the Alliance's General Council in Ghana on July 6, 2007 [2]

Notably, the Southern Baptist Convention (the world's largest Baptist denomination) is no longer a member; it withdrew from the Alliance in 2004 over concerns that it had become increasingly liberal in doctrine (at a time when the SBC was becoming conservative once again).
