The Thirteenth Baptist World Congress of 1975, held in Stockholm, Sweden, resolves to offer its great appreciation to the Program Committee of the BWA and to the Local Arrangements Committee of the Baptist Union of Sweden for the labor of love in bringing this Baptist Congress into great success.

To the government of Sweden and to the authorities of the city of Stockholm and to those who opened their homes for participants of this congress, we express our sincere gratitude for outstanding hospitality.

To the staff of the BWA offices we give thanks for its efficient and dedicated service in regard to this congress.

We express, finally, appreciation to all those who participated in the program in whatever way and gave of their best to make this congress an inspiration always to be remembered.
