Baptist Denomination forms the fifth largest Christian church in the world. Out of the ten fastest growing Baptist churches in the world, the first five is from Africa and out of the six Baptist world Alliance regions, the fastest growing region is Africa (Dr. Elijah Brown- Baptist World Alliance General Secretary)
God is indeed at work in Africa. To this end we introduce to you the All Africa Baptist Fellowship (AABF) – Uniting African Baptists to fulfil the great commission.
The All Africa Baptist Fellowship is a regional arm of Baptist World Alliance in Africa established in 1982 to serve as platform to unite and coordinate Baptist bodies on the continent for fellowship, missions, evangelism, church planting and response to other demands.
For effective coordination and mobilization, the continent is grouped into five regions: North Africa, West Africa, East Africa, Central Africa and Southern Africa. This unites 69 Baptist conventions and Unions from 36 Countries in Africa.
Our Departmental target:
To reach out with a positive influence to the Men, Women, Youth and Children at the grass root level within the scope of our network of operations.
Network of operations:
- Christian literature writers training: we organize program to train and equip writers who will write Christian literature in their indigenous context to meet the spiritual needs of the people as well as assist in the production of such literature. You can benefit from this if you have passion for writing Christian literature.
- Leadership training programs: Are you a leader at the church, association, conference or national level? We organize capacity building conferences and training programs to equip apex leaders, pastors, deacons, lay-leaders and church officers on best leadership practices for kingdom growth.
- Theological Educators conference: the conference brings together theological trainers in Baptist theological institutions across Africa with the aim of preparing servants of God for Gods service and formulate biblically sound theological positions from African perspective in the wake of modern day theologies.
- Student Ministry: we work to establish vibrant student ministries in conventions and unions across Africa with a view to helping and engaging students in commitment and responsibilities.
- Children Ministry: we conduct training programs to empower children teachers in order to have a robust children ministry in Baptist churches across Africa.
- Social Ministry: we rise to provide aid to those who are hurting in Africa as a result of civil war, famine, disease outbreak, political unrest, persecution and those suffering from various forms of depression
