Since the Asian Baptist Fellowship (Now Asia Pacific Baptist Federation) joined the BWA as the regional body in 1975; the first historic gathering of Baptist in Asia and the Pacific was held in January of 1979 in Hyderabad, India. Since then APBF Congress has met regularly every 5 years touching thousands of Baptists through the Congress. APBF has witnessed the faithfulness of God in Asia and the Pacific over the period of 40 years as the Baptists of Asia and the Pacific has grown to almost 40,000 churches today.The 10th APBF Congress calls again the Baptists to gather with the theme “Stronger Together” in its first Hybrid Congress (available to both in-person and online attendees) and witness yet again God’s faithfulness. In-person will allow you to interact face-to-face with the speakers while online will provide a seamless flexibility to join the Congress from your location.
