Baptist World Congress July 2025 in Brisbane!

Meet your global family as Baptists from all over the world descend on Brisbane’s Convention Centre and Exhibition Centre.

For more than 100 years, Baptists from across the globe have gathered for the Baptist World Congress. Hosted every five years in rotating regional locations, the 23rd Baptist World Congress will take place July 7-12, 2025, in Brisbane! This is a partnership between the Baptist World Alliance, and our Australian Baptist movement.

The Congress Logo has just been released!  Designed by Australian Indigenous artist Mariah Sweetman, the branding is rich with symbolic meaning.

The event theme is “Living the Good News” drawn from Luke 4: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (v. 18-19)

“The theme and passage inspired the storytelling design in an artistic style that is unique to Australian First Nations people,” said Sweetman.

The river design is centered on living the good news through the “Living Water,” the phrase Jesus uses in John 4 when ministering to the woman at the well. The water shape depicted in the logo symbolizes the journey of believers to Christ.
