Recognizing that man in his natural state apart from Jesus Christ is estranged from God and helpless in the grip of his own sin which leads him to eternal death; and

Recognizing that the spirit of lawlessness which infects our world threatens to consume the structures of civilization in the flames of anarchy; and

Recognizing the special obligation under the Great Commission to disciple the people of the world in the name of Jesus Christ; and

Affirming the special appeal of world missions in the program of the Church both locally and denominationally;

We therefore resolve to give ourselves without stint to this priority task of world evangelism, to the end that men shall come to put their trust in God through Jesus Christ, accepting Him as their Savior and serving Him as their Lord in the fellowship of His church.
