BWA General Council Resolution 2006.6

The General Council of the Baptist World Alliance, meeting in Mexico City, July 3-8, 2006:

Reaffirms at the beginning of a new century of Baptist World Alliance life and witness our commitment to proclaim and demonstrate, through word and deed, our faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

Recognizes that our Christian faith needs to be expressed and lived out in societies throughout the world that are increasingly multi-cultural and multi-lingual.

Acknowledges the need to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ to those who do not speak a “dominant” language and can be easily overlooked.

Celebrates the rich diversity and worth of the many cultures and languages represented within the Baptist World Alliance and beyond.

Rejoices that the good news of Jesus Christ transcends and enhances all cultures.
