BWA General Council Resolution 1988.5

The General Council of the Baptist World Alliance has often addressed peace issues, most recently in 1985 and 1986. Again in 1988, as the Council meets in the Bahamas, we:

Reaffirm previous resolutions that have spoken to peace with disarmament and peace with justice, and

Welcome the completion of the treaty calling for the elimination of intermediate range nuclear equipped missiles for the United States of America and the USSR and encourage work toward understandings which will lead to the reduction of all levels of military forces.

We commend the pursuit of the disarmament goals of the United Nations and urge governments of the world to participate in the multilateral disarmament negotiations conducted under U.N. auspices, looking toward the establishment of international security for all.

We enthusiastically support the worldwide profess leading toward a World Convocation in Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation, and we encourage our churches to participate in that process.

In view of hostilities between and within countries in the Middle East and strife-torn regions ofAsia, Africa and Latin America, we

Encourage all Christians and other of good will to continue in the quest for good neighborliness and confidence-building measures among nations because we believe such efforts are consistent with the gospel of peace and truth Christians seek to proclaim;

Affirm the efforts of Baptist peacemakers to link together a global network of fellow believers committed to “seek peace and pursue it; and

Call on every Baptist church in our worldwide family to pray that we, as individuals and congregations, will be patient peacemakers in our warring world, bearing faithful witness to Jesus Christ who is the source of peace and justice.
