BWA Executive Committee Resolution 1932-11.1

6. WORLD CONGRESS, BERLIN — (a) Meeting postponed until 1934.

Representations regarding the advisability of a change of date for the next World Congress were considered. Extensive correspondence from the United States, South America, Germany and other countries in Europe, was submitted by the Secretaries. The President added a brief report respecting representations that had reached himself.

After prolonged and careful consideration the Committee unanimously adopted the following resolution:

That in view of the resent economic situation and the serious burdens resting on the missionary enterprises of the denomination throughout the world, the Congress of Berlin be postponed until 1934. The Executive Committee hopes and believes that an improvement in world conditions will permit it then to take place without the disadvantages which would at present be difficult to avoid. The members of the Executive Committee trust that Baptists from all parts of the world will unite to ensure that the Baptist World Congress to be held in Berlin at that time shall be fully attended and be spiritually effective.

During the discussion it was mentioned that in the event of the Congress being held in 1934 its would fall in the centenary year from the birth of Charles Haddon Surgeon and the beginnings of Baptist work in Germany.
