BWA World Congress Resolution 1990.5

The Baptist World Alliance, holding its sixteenth quinquennial Baptist World Congress in Seoul, Korea, during August 1990 has through this occasion brought together Baptists from around the world for worship, inspiration and fellowship, as well as discussion of evangelism and Baptist witness.

Our days in Seoul, Korea,, have been made enjoyable and effective by the combined efforts of the Baptists of Korea and the cooperation of their compatriots under the leadership of Dr. Billy Kim and Dr. Stephen No.

We, therefore, RESOLVE to express our appreciation to all who have labored for the comfort, pleasure, inspiration and enlightenment of this Congress, and we acknowledge the many acts of commitment, Christian love and sacrifice which have contributed to this world meeting; and even further we express our Christian compassion for the families of South Korea and North Korea who have been separated for 44 years due to the ideological and political differences existing between these areas and pledge our Christian concern and prayers for the expansion of the freedom of religious worship, and the development of a spirit of reconciliation between all people of Korea.
