World Mission

»Therefore go
and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely
I am with you always, to the very end of the age!«


The Baptist Union of Austria is one of 28 Baptist unions in Europe, Latin America and Africa that jointly support the work of the European Baptist Mission (EBM INTERNATIONAL). Their goal: to support people worldwide in both their spiritual and material needs.

EBM INTERNATIONAL supports projects in seven African countries, in five Latin American countries and also in India. In their work in schools, children’s homes, hospitals and other institutions, they coordinate closely with local partner churches.

EBM INTERNATIONAL seeks to pass on the love of God holistically, providing the help that is needed in a grassroots and community-related way. They understand their world mission work to be on behalf of and in cooperation with the church congregations. EBM INTERNATIONAL engages in multi-directional mission work. Their missionaries come from many different countries and in turn work in several different continents. EBM INTERNATIONAL sees world missions as an active, joint responsibility for God’s world – for peace, justice and creation care.

Many Austrians have worked as missionaries with EBM INTERNATIONAL in the past and now bring their experience to the work in Austria.
