BWA General Council Resolution 1984.6

This Council expresses its deep appreciation to the Union of the Evangelical Free Churches s in Germany (Bund Evangelisch-Freikirchlicher Gemeinden in Deutschland), to the Baptist Churches of Berlin West and to the city authorities, for their welcome and generous hospitality and for their careful preparations for these Council meetings. We also thank the officers and staff of the Alliance for their commitment and organization which have insured the success of the meetings.

We are grateful for the international fraternal fellowship which we have experienced. We pray that our fellowship may be a sign of hope and a token of understanding of what God intends for all humanity. (Ephesians 2:14-16: “For he is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility…that he might create in himself one new man in place of two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end.”)
