Resolutions with Meaning
It is an incredible success in the movement to spread God's love for immigrants: The Baptist State Convention of NC on November 3 passed a resolution in its annual state convention. CIR was instrumental in encouraging and supporting the drafting of the resolution, which recognizes the church's need for loving the immigrant as God does and encourages churces to reach out in God's love in an appropriate way to immigrants around them.
