Resolution Embracing The Cooperative Program
October 19 2010 by

WHEREAS, these are unprecedented times of globalization, communication, declining Western Civilization, and a great opportunity for sharing the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and shining the light of the Gospel; and
WHEREAS, these times call for an unprecedented level of cooperation to accomplish the goal of bringing the Great Commission message to every people group in North Carolina, North America and the world; and
WHEREAS, the Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Orlando, June 15, 2010 voted to adopt the Great Commission Resurgence Task Force Report that refined the strategies of the convention but only after the report was amended by a nearly unanimous vote to state unequivocally that Cooperative Program giving is the preferred method for funding the Southern Baptist Convention’s ministries and that designated giving is not a substitute for Cooperative Program giving,
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina meeting in annual session  in Greensboro, NC, November 8-10, 2010 acknowledges the value of concerted, cooperative ministries of our churches to reach the peoples of our state, the nation and the world; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we are concerned that the strength and vitality of our coordinated strategies, ministries and institutions would be diminished by an independent/societal model; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we encourage the Baptist State Convention of NC  to select leaders who have demonstrated strong support for our cooperative missions model; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we are grateful to Rev. Milton Hollifield and his staff for their public and private advocacy toward simultaneously reaching the lost in our local areas, the state, the nation and the world through the Cooperative Program; and
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that we embrace the Cooperative Program model as the most accountable, effective, efficient and compelling method for fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ.
