1928 BWA World Congress Message

Excerpt From the Foreword by J. H. Rushbrooke:

It will be observed that the assembly at Toronto has adopted no formal resolutions. It became clear in the course of the week that (especially since the Alliance is not an executive or a local body— pronouncements on specific topics are as a rule undesirable. The Congress nevertheless felt that it had something to say to Baptists throughout the world; and therefore (without committing itself to every detail or to precise phraseology) it gave general approval to the address of President Mullins, to my own address on “The Baptist World Alliance in retrospect and in prospect”, and to the Congress sermon of Dr. Charles Brown. These are to be published as its “ Message”.


BWA; J. H. Rushbrooke.
