We note with gratitude to God the growing evangelism movement in North America, and the spiritual renewal taking place in increasing numbers of churches and communities in this year of Key 73. We urge evangelicals to take renewed initiative in continuing emphasis in prayer, New Testament evangelism, and earnest lay witness to every person in North America.

We further resolve to develop and to implement a strategy that will build momentum for a vital Christian witness during the 1976 American Bicentennial. We hold that the heritage of this nation demands nothing less than an emphatic reassertion of historic, biblical Christianity.
