Global Mission

BWA General Council Resolution 2000.1

The General Council of the Baptist World Alliance meeting in Havana July 5-8 2000

REAFFIRMS the priority given by the Baptist World Alliance to mission and evangelism;

RECALLS the special evangelistic programmes developed by many Unions and Conventions organised for the end of the 1990’s, including the BWA programme of a special month of evangelism and its call to renew our evangelistic commitment at the beginning of a new era;

ENCOURAGES all member bodies and mission agencies to support the BWA ‘Global Mission Summit’ planned for 2002 in ‘Carey country’, England;

TRUSTS that under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, this event will be a profound opportunity to learn from the past in mission work and strategise realistically for the future; and

BELIEVES that only by careful reflection on past mission activity and effective theological and strategic work on contextual missiology will Baptist Christians be able to participate effectively in the Great Commission.
