BWA World Congress Resolution 1955.2
Whereas the Baptist World Alliance in 1934, 1939, 1947 and 1950 has already declared itself unalterably opposed to racial discrimination in every form; and
Whereas, in this Congress of the Baptist World Alliance representatives have gathered from more than sixty countries representing many nationalities and races;
We rejoice that here we have a manifestation of brotherhood in Christ which breaks across lines of race and class.
Nevertheless, we deplore the fact that in many of the lands from which we come, men and women still suffer disabilities because of race.
Further, we once again urge our churches everywhere to do all in their power not only within their fellowship, but in their wider communities and in the world to make real the highest Christian meaning of human brotherhood.
