Religion

Through The Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion, the bread and cup symbolize the broken body and shed blood offered by Christ recall God’s great love for people. As they did for the disciples on the eve of Christ’s crucifixion.

Politics

Every Christian should seek to bring industry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of righteousness, truth, and brotherly love.

Views

Baptist Churches should organize delegations to different ecumenical conferences throughout the world and actively participate in the global inter-religious dialogues.
