Religious freedom feature
Baptists have had a long tradition in their fight for freedom and justice, and in particular, in the cause for religious liberty. A majority of the world's population continues to experience significant restrictions in religious beliefs and practices. A feature article on the BWA website, Religious freedom for all, encourages Baptists to reevaluate our historical stance on the behalf of religious liberty.
