Southern Baptist Convention

WHEREAS, Our national security interests require both a strong defense and a responsible limitation of nuclear weapons.

Therefore, be it RESOLVED, That we affirm our historic Baptist commitment to peace with justice as a goal in personal, social, and international relationships.

Be it further RESOLVED, That we encourage Southern Baptists to work actively in the pursuit of peace with justice not only through preaching, teaching, and praying in our homes and churches, but also through involving ourselves in the political process, doing the things which make for peace as an expression of our ultimate loyalty to Jesus Christ our Lord.

Be it finally RESOLVED, That we support a program of mutually verifiable disarmament, including nuclear disarmament; and, we assure the United Nations Special Session on Disarmament of our prayers and hopes for progress toward peace.
