LEADERSHIP AND WORLD VISION (1990)

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).
