THE CHURCH OF GOD is an international church, transcending culture, race, nationalism, and politics. It is a community of believers from every nation around the world. These times call for leadership to have a worldview of the church. There is no place for colonialism or provincialism.
THEREFORE WE RESOLVE
To cultivate a world perspective among all church leaders
To develop an awareness and understanding among leaders of the need for keeping pace with rapid change
To educate leadership in reaching the needs of all cultures
To initiate strategies for developing leaders within each cul- ture served by the church
To strengthen leadership through special seminars on leadership conferences
To recognize that existing leaders have world responsibilities and are therefore internationally accountable
To involve as many leaders as possible in the decision-
making processes of the church
To confirm again our role as an international church whose primary mission is to win and disciple souls for Jesus Christ (63rd A., 1990, pp. 65, 66).
For over 125 years the Church of God has been a distinctive movement focused upon communicating the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit. Presently, the Church of God has a world-wide membership of over 7 million with a presence in nearly 180 countries.
