Resolution 39

The Church and the Modern World - The Christian Way of Life

The Conference affirms that wholeness of personality can be attained only in so far as a man is consciously associated with Jesus Christ. This wholeness necessitates membership of the perfect society, the Kingdom of God proclaimed by Christ. The growth of that Kingdom is advanced by all honest and rightly directed work and service in every sphere of art and science, politics and industry. But it is the calling of the Church to act as God's special instrument in its extension everywhere. It is therefore in the society of their fellow Christians that men will find an adequate purpose in life, an assurance of their individual worth, and the power to become true men.
