The Bible challenges selfish, oppressive and destructive worldviews and systems. Additionally, God calls on humankind, through the Bible, to turn from these and to pursue justice, peace and kindness in all spheres of life – relational, economic and environmental. Particular consideration was given in this Assembly to the Bible’s message in relation to global inequality, climate change and human migration.
We affirm that honest engagement with the Bible creates possibilities of hope and genuine transformation. To this end, we recommit ourselves to the continuing task of Bible translation and provision in all languages and formats, and to working with churches across all confessions, as well as other ministry partners and audiences, to develop relevant programmes and to ensure that every barrier of access to the Bible’s message is removed.
The Bible speaks today!
