Resolution On The Lords Day

1. The Southern Baptist Convention hereby reaffirms its devotion to the sanctity of the Christian Sabbath as a day of rest and worship, to be faithfully observed by all Christians in keeping with their Christian privileges and obligations, and to the civil Sunday as a day of rest and quiet for man and beast. The Convention would urge upon our people to “Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy,” to abstain from secular employment and to assemble regularly and faithfully in the Lord’s House for worship, and would urge upon all public officials and private citizens for necessity and obligation for the enactment, maintenance and enforcement of all legislation necessary, as a matter of public morality, to safeguard Sunday against commercialization and to preserve Sunday as one of the most distinctive and most necessary features of our civic life.
