2025 Baptist World Congress

2025 Baptist World Congress

From July 7-12, 2025 the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre will play host to the 2025 Baptist World Congress.

The 2025 Baptist World Congress marks 120 years since the first quinquennial meeting of the Baptist World Congress in 1905. Queensland Baptists and Australian Baptist Ministries are honoured to be hosting this truly international event in collaboration with ministry partners Baptist World Alliance.

The week of the 2025 Baptist World Congress consists of 3 events:

  • 7-8 July – Baptist Women’s Summit
  • 7-8 July – Emerging Leaders’ Summit
  • 9-12 July – The Main Baptist World Congress

The main Congress program will begin with the Opening Celebration on the evening of Wednesday 9th July, and continue daily and nightly until the Closing Celebration on the evening of Saturday 12th July. From Thursday 10th July to Saturday 12th July, the program will feature a variety of activities including plenary sessions, Bible studies, seminars, and focus groups. Additionally, an International Festival will take place, providing wonderful opportunities for fellowship and networking among our Brothers and Sisters in Christ.

More information on keynote speakers and the daily program will be available in the coming months.
