Resolution On Strengthening Families

WHEREAS, The family has been clearly defined in God’s Word and accepted by the Jewish and Christian society of America for over two hundred years; and

WHEREAS, Traditional Judeo-Christian family values are being threatened; and

WHEREAS, American families need to have affirmation by the Christian community; and

WHEREAS, Our churches have increasing opportunities to minister to singles and single parent families; and

WHEREAS, The Southern Baptist Convention has voted to launch in 1982 a three-year emphasis on Strengthening Families;

Be it therefore RESOLVED, That we urge all Southern Baptist churches and families to engage in activities and instruction to further the Strengthening Families emphasis; and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we urge families to establish and maintain vital relationships with God and each other through prayer and the study of God’s Word; and

Be it finally RESOLVED, That we express our determination to share the love, wholesomeness, and strength of the family of God with all the families of man.
