Resolution On Colored People

RESOLVED, That the seven millions of colored people within the bounds of this Convention have peculiar claims upon us for whatever of religious instruction be needed for their evangelization, and their proper instruction in the truths and duties of the Gospel.

RESOLVED, That the Home Mission Board is hereby recommended to prosecute its work already begun of holding Institutes under the direction of suitable men, for the purpose of furnishing to colored preachers and deacons instruction in the doctrines of the Gospel, and in the practices of the New Testament Churches, and that this Board be encouraged to secure for this purpose pastors of our churches and others who may be possessed of such gifts as qualify them for this work.
