Resolution 33

Missionary Problems

The normal method of missions is that in which the whole Church, within any area, acts as a missionary body expressly organised for that function, and the principle which underlies this method is capable of universal application. While we humbly thank God for the work of the missionary societies, we consider that these societies, where they exist, should not stand outside the one organisation, but should be elements in it, co-ordinated, whether by a central advisory council or otherwise, under the supreme synodical authority, but retaining severally such degrees of independence as the conditions of their efficiency demand.
