THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED That we recognize the U.S.A. as a mission field; and,
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED That the Evangelism and Home Missions Department develop and deploy home missionaries and request missionaries from other ethnic and language groups from the international body who make up the Church of God; and,
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED That we continue to develop means by which the departments of World Missions and Evangelism and Home Missions work together in developing strategies and training workers for the world harvest.
