Perhps these definitions re bit oversimplifled, but they do give the bsic concept of ech. Free V/ill Bptists hve congregtionl form of government. Every church is completely independent. Though there re denomintionl orgriztions with borcls, committees, etc., from the locl qurterly meeting to the Ntionl Assocition; thesc hve bsolutely no uthority over single church. (The Qurterly Meeting my, of course, withdrw fellowship from the church. This, however, is to be done only whcn r church hs violted its covennt or when it becomes hereticl or coüupt in prcticc. Even then, the Qurterly Meeting is under obligtion to seek to bring the church bck gin to the truth before withdrwing fellowship.) f, then, ech locl church is its own governing body nd no higher body hs uthority over it, how cn we ccomplish nything in denomintionl frmework th rt will be truly signiîcnt nd bring honor nd glory to Jesus Christ? The nswer, bclieve, is through coopertion. While every Free Will Bptist Church is independcnt nd free f om ll uthorittive control of men, it is lso free to cooperte with othcr Free Will Bptist Churches in kingdom ffirs. t is on this bsis tht progress will come. Our denomintion will grow, build, nd evngelize s we cooperte with one nother. How trgic tht this coopertion hs been so slow nd meger! There is no doubt but wht we need to mke much of our interdependence s well s our independence, Yes, we re independent in our church government, but t the sme tinrc, we need one nother. We must lern to live together, council together, work together, in shortto cooperte, if we would ccomplish nything for God. Perhps we neecl greter recognition of Him who is the true Hed of the Church, the Lord Jesus Christ. This is our gret chllenge, tht under Him, we might move forwrd-together! i:n.ä:+i:iäi;i,: +i:ii+rrit:i::::+ti:,.n.iì Foithfulness to the Greot Stote Reporters ALABAMA, Chrles O.

Prce 2 The month of Mrch brings us s denomintion to the second phse of our 25th Session Progrm. For the lst two months (Jnury-Februry), our emphsis hs been COMMTMENT TO CHRST. Mny of our churches hve shred in this emphsis nd it hs been source of blessing. t is hoped tht mny more of our churches will shre in the remining months of this specil emphsis. Note gin the suggestions for this prt of the progrm. (1) Conduct clsses on personl soul-winning nd give emphsis to visittion. f you do not hve visittion progrm, strt one. (2) Pln revivl cmpign during this period. Stress personl responsibility in this effort. (3) Hve t lest one specil pryer service for our missionries. The week befo e Ester (April 2) would be good time. Remember, we hve not set ny prticulr dtes for these ctivities. Pln s you cn t the convenience of your church to shre with us. We would be hppy to her from your church bout your prticiption. Foreign Missions Sundoy Ester Sundy, April 2, is Foreign Missions Sundy. At this time, we seek s denomintion to bring to our churches nd our people everywhere the work of our Foreign Mission Bord, or perhps more ccurtely, the work of Free Will Bptist Churches (yours nd mine) in the gret tsk of evngelizing the world. After ll, this work would not be possible without the fithful support of our churches, nd the tsk of evngeliztion does not belong to our Foreign Mission Bord lone-it belongs to every church nd every individul within tht church. t is impertive, therefore, tht this dy be fced honestly nd when you re sked to mke gift to the cuse of missions tht you respond, becuse this is yoør work nd yo rr responsibility. Our missionry fmily looks to us. Let's mke this dy of rel victory! CoNr.cr

3 The Centurions $tory No rnrv cnl conne neur the cross nd go mny the sme. Here ís oofirst-persono' sernl,orl whích drmtizes the poue, oí the cross. t't-t lhe story of the deth of Jesus Christ hs been told nd written thousnds of times. For me to but dd to the multitude of words would be both superflous nd presumptuous on my prt. would rther hve you listen to the story, old, yet ever new, from one who herd the hert-rending cries of Golgoth-one who sw Him die! "Yes, sw Him die. Who m? ws the Centurion, proud soldier of the mighty Cesr, whose job it ws to keep order mong the lothsome Jewry! Oh, how hted it! This ws one of the worst ssignments under the mperil Egle. A "wtchdog" over crowd of mngy, selfish, pseudo-religious Jews in run-down country where you burn with het t noon, nd shivered under the cold strs t night-wht job! The only relief from the dred monotony, from the ching loneliness nd yerning for fmily nd home. ws when we hd crucifixion to perform. 'We mde it sporting event, gmbling over the few scrce pieces of property left by the condemned, nd in guessing the length of time before the "ccused niml-jews" would die. Oh, it gve us something to tlk bout s we lolled round the fires in the brrcks, nd something to think bout in the lonely hours of sentry duty. So when the Pssover cme, nd it becme evident tht the blood-lust of the mob ws to be stisfied, ws gld. ws especilly plesed, lor one of the victims promised to be more exciting thn ny of the others. He ws lntic from tñe North--Nzreth-l believe it ws, nd it ws rumored tht His followers would ttempt rmed defense of Him. Wht mde it more interesting ws the insistent tlking by Fortinius-1essntly trnsferred from Cpernum-tht this Jewish fntic ws god! He kept sying something bout the heling of one of his servnts by this-this Jesus! We lughed t such fntstic notion, for even the Jews hd sying- "Cn nything good come out of Nzreth?"

TO S { REYTEW Q,n/,il/ øn/ ß,n*øfir THE STORY of the rebirth of denomintion could not be told hd it not been for gret missionry wkening in the Free Will Bptist churches. f there is one single fctor tht hs kept people of unfmilir origins together, it hs been the one common belief tht the tonement is universl nd, therefore, God's people hve responsibility to the entire world. The very sme yer the Ntionl Assocition of Free Will Bptists ws born, their union ws crowned with the sending out of lone missionry to ndi. ndi-the plce where their erlier brethren hd struggled to found growing mission progrm exctly one hundred yers before. The missionry ws Miss Lur Belle Brnrd. t looked like feeble effort, but God blessed it nd He blessed he. Chrles Spp hs pstored Free Will Bptist Churches in severl sttes. llis lst pstorte \ys in Vireini. He is presently completing his work for B.D. degree t Union Theologicl Seminry, Richmond, Vi gini. Pece 4 Miss Brnrd ws commissioned in June, She siled short time lter nd begn her work s the first missionry of the econstruction. When she reched the field nd lerned the lnguge, Miss Brnrd begn her work. She strted house to house visittion. She went to the smll villges round. As opportunity presented itself she witnessed for Christ. She ws ble to tech the women nd girls to sew. Sewing clsses were begun nd while she tught sewing she lso tught the women âbout Jesus Christ. She orgnized Sundy school clsses nd tught the pupils from the Bible. When the prents becme interested in their children lerning to red nd write, she opened Dy School. n this Christin tmosphere, the children lerned not only reding nd writing but the principles of Christin living. n 1.947, the Reverend nd Mrs. Pul Woolsey joined Miss Brnrd in ndi. Shortly fterwrd, the Reverend nd Mrs. Dn Cronk cme. Miss Zlene Loyd nd Miss Volen Wilson were lso dded to the missionry stff there, nd in fbe Revêrend nd Mrs. Crisle Hnn joined the group. Miss Brnrd, ''Reverend nd Mrs. Pul Vy'oolsey re now bck in the sttes. The Cronks, Miss Wilson, nd the Hnns re still on the field mintining the wo k. The crying need now is for more missionries. The Foreign Mission Bord hs been trying to get missionries on the fleld, but ech time the ndi government turns them down. Free Will Bptist Missions in Jpn At the close of World Wr n unusul opportunity ws present for the evûgeliztion of Jpn. After the occuption of Jpn by Americn militry forces, Generl Dougls McArthur ppeled to the churches of Americ to send missionries to prech nd tech the Gospel of Christ. Wesley nd Aileen Clvry were the first Free Will Bptist missionries to go in response to this c1l. They lnded in Yokhm on November 14, Fred nd Evelyn Hersey joined them in the wo k in April; Herbert nd Gerldine Wid siled for Jpn in'august, At the present time these couples constitute the Free Will Bptist missionry force in Jpn. Jpn still preserits n unusul opportunity for missionry work, but it lso pre- CoNr.cr

The totl re of Jpn is only bout 142,000 squre miles nd the popultion is well over 90 million. This is cusing nd will continue to cuse tremendous problems. The eductionl level is high. Shintoism is the leding religion, Buddhism hs strong hold on the minds of the people. These conditions, plus Jpnese cluture, mke missionry work tremendously difficult. Four mission points hve been estblished in Jpn from which we hope to contribute to the Christin witness in this pgn lnd. They re Abshiri, Bihro, Kshimizu, nd Meguro. There hve lredy been young men come out of these mission efforts to give themselves in ministry to their people. Since we do not hve school there they hve hd to go elsewhere to receive their trining. Free Wilt Bptist Missions in Cub The re of the islnd of Cub is 4t,634 squre miles, nd the popultion is pproximtely seven million. The islnd is divided into six provinces: lbn, Pinr del'rio, Mtnzs, Ls Vills, Cmguey, nd Oriente. The Free Will Bptist mission work in Cub ws strted in the province of Pinr del Rio in 1942, by the Reverend nd Mrs. Thoms Willey, Sr. They hd previously worked in Pnm, nd when tht field ws closed they worked with the Cubn Evngeliztion Assocition for yer. During tht yer they tught in the Bible School of the Cubn Evngeliztion Assocition nd studied the lnguge nd customs of the Cubn people. n Mrch, 7942, they begn Free Will Bptist work nd estblished Bible school. This school hs been the mens of trining mny Cubn pstors nd Christin workers' The mission's success hs been due to the outstnding success the school hs hd in trining the ntives to become effective Christin witnesses, pstors, nd techers. Mr. nd Mrs. Willey hve been ssisted in the mission work by severl missionries, including the Reverend nd Mrs. Dmon Dodd, the Reverend -nd Mrs' Robert Wilfong, Mr. nd Mrs. He bert Phenice, Miss Bessie Yeley, Miss Lucy Wisehrt, nd Miss Esther Ruehle. They re now being ssisted by their son, the Reverend nd Mrs. Tommy Willey, Jr. The lst mission report on Cub gve these sttistics concerning its growth' There re more thn twenty-five Free Will Bptist Churches in Cub, with totl membership of over 3,000.

With this purpose in mind the mission bord permitted him to tke tour of prts of South Americ to survey the field nd to estblish the necessry contcts to begin mission efforts there. As result of his efforts the Free Will Bptist Bord of Foreign Missions ws ble to estblish mission sttion in Brzil in The Reverend Dve Frnks ws the first Free Will Bptist missionry to work in this new field. He siled for Brzil on December 31, 1.957, nd fter period of lnguge study entered into ctive missionry work. We hve one church in Cmpins which hs membe ship of one hundred. They re now in the process of erecting their own building which is to serve lso for trining center for ntive pstors. A permnent mission sttion is plnned to be opened in Prn.,Miss Esther Ruehle nd Miss Eul Me Mrtin, both nurses were the second missionries sent out. They were followed by Reverend nd Mrs. Ken Eglelon nd Reverend nd Mrs. Smuel Wilkinson. Free \ilill Bptist Missions in Afric For severl yers Free \ilill Bptist were represented in Afric only becuse they were supporting Mrs. Hrold Stevens, who ws Free Will Bptist. She nd her husbnd serve under one of the lrge "fith" mission bords.

FREE WLL BAPTST MSSONS N PERSPECTTVE The first missionries from our church siled to ndi-in For the next seventyfive yers growing missionry enterprise ws crried on. Souls were sved nd churches were orgnized. Ntives were trined both for Christin service nd voctionlly. Orphnges were founded s well s schools nd hospitls. Linguistic chievements though smll in the light of the need nd the ccomplishments of other missionries in this fleld, mde their contribution to the evngeliztion of ndi. Then the mjority of Free Will Bptist Churches went into the newly orgnized Americn Bptist Convention nd denomintionl desthction ws lost. The remnnt left retin the nme Free Will Bptist. These churches were wideþ scttered nd were without effective denomintionl orgniztion nd institutions. After the destruction of Tecumseh College; Tecumseh, Oklhom, nd Eurek College; Ayden, North Crolin, there were no denomintionl colleges for trining her young people for the work of the ministry. For mny yers these struggling people hd to fight to mintin themselves ginst high odds. n the West church property ws tken from them- The Est suffered from lck of orgniztion nd vision. Both groups lost ll vision beyond theh own immedite loclities. The merger of these two bodies in 1935 ws mrked by sending out lone missionry-nd womn t tht-but thnk God, womn ws willing to go. ndi, the strting plce for their mission work exctly one hundred, yers previously ws her destintion.', This reunited group soon opened work in Cub. A new college ws founded in Nshville, Tennessee, nd her young people begn to trin gin for service in the church. With eductionl enlightenment nd incresed vision concerning the world round her, new churches were orgnized. Riding on the crest of evngelism sprked in the 1950's her church t home ws incresing rpidly. The work of the denomintion ws centrlized in the Ntionl Hedqurters building in Nshville, Temessee. The work of the denomintion ws orgnized nd objectives were pursued with zel. There hd been twenty-ûve yers of silence while the wounds of disruption were heling, but the next twenty-five were bringing rpid growth. She ws seeking her plce in the sun. At the present, she hs 71 missionries including children, nd her work hs extended into six ntions through her Foreign mission enterprises.

Mr. Getz is professor of Chrístín Eduction t MoodY Bíbe nstítute. QuesrroN: Mr, Getz, wht do You cotlsider to be the mjor secrets of success for the vction Bible schoolt ANswen: would list three. Strt plnning erly. Get the whole church inte ested. Adequtely "follow-up" the school. QunsrroN: Are there significnt points you would stress for plnníng vction Bible school? ANswpR: Well, think there re number of points tht should be stressed' Flrsf, ppoint vction Bible school committee to oversee ll plnning' Second, pln with the totl church progrm in mind. Relte vction Bible school to Sundy school, youth groups, nd weekdy ctivities. Third, stfi. VBS plnning t the close of the current vçtion school' Evlute every spect of the progrm. Ask such questions s: W'ere curriculum mterils stisfctory? Did we hve sufficient spce? Did we hve enough techers nd workers? Did we hve àdequte records? Fourth, pln vction Bible school clendr for the whole yer which correltes with the church clendr' Schedule ll plnning meetings s well s the dtes for the coming school. Finlly, number five, mke sure the following items re cred for long before the schooi begins. 1. Determine the type of school. 2. Select the curriculum mteril' 3' Set up system of trining. 4' Pln for housing, trnsporttion, nd promotion. QursrroN: Hve you ny suggestions lor getting the whole church interested? ANswen: think the Pstor is the key here. He must promote vction Bible school in the pulpit. He should mention it in pryer meetings. n ny wy he cn, the pstor should promote the school. Of course, the superintendent nd the deprtment superintendents re lso key people in pròmoting the school, but if the pstor is not sotd on the vction Bible school progrm, in mny instnces superintendents ãnd the deprtment superintendents ren't relly sold either. ÇoNr.lcr

9 SCFTOOL QuesrroN: Where nd how do you octe workerst Axswen: For the most prt, leders should come from the locl church. As to how to locte them, severl points re importnt. 1. Strt contcting them erly. Contct workers by the fi st of the yer before they hve mde vction plns. Encourge them to pln their vctiõns with the vction Bible school in mi d. 2. f most of your leders re working during the dy, try n evening school so men s well s women cn help. Mny churches hve done this with outstnding success. 3. Set up perennil trining clss in the church from which to drw workers. Contct the Evngelicl Techer Trining Assocition locted t 1825 College Avenue, \ilheton, llinois for informtion for setting up these clsses. QuesrroN: When should pupils be registered? ANswnn: We ought to register s mny pupils s possible before the school strts. At lest the Sundy before the opening dy, conduct pre-registrtion in Sundy school. Mncu, 1961 Hve the Sundy school techers register the pupils in their individul clsses, Also conduct pre-registrtion in the church service to contct those who do not ttend Sundy school. This type of pre-registrtion serves two purposes. First, it sves time on the opening dy of school, nd secondly, it serves s n excellent method of publicity. QuesrroN: Wht re severl mjor prob- ems in connection wíth registrtion? Alrswen: There ren't relly ny big problems if pre-registrtion is plnned for dequtely. lowever, if you re strting school in new re, such s brnch school, pre-registrtion will hve to conducted through cnvss nd on the opening dy. Too, even in school tht is conducted regulrly in the sme church, there will lwys be those who will hve to be registered on the opening dy. However, if creful plnning is done, this will not crete ny mjor problem. One flnl suggestion is tht you cn pln specil pre-registrtion dy on Sturdy before the school strts. Refreshments cn be served, fllm or slides from lst yer's school cn be shown, nd the pre-registrtion period cn be followed by the vction Bible school prde. QunsrroN: [4/ht records re the most importdnt, Mr, Getz? Axswen: believe there re seven types of records tht must be kept. 1. The nmes nd ddresses of ll pupils nd workers. 2. Enrollment nd dily ttendnce in ech deprtment. 3. Offerings received. 4. Pictoril records. 5. Decisions for Christ. 6. Curriculum mterils used. 7. Evlution of the totl progrm. QursrroN: Wht do you men by pictoril records? Auswnn: By pictoril records, men those which re kept showing the pictures of the school. For exmple, probbly one of the members of the church will hve gooð 35 mm cmer with which you cn tke 2 x 2 colored slides of the school. You cn include pictures of the prde, pictures of the deprtments in ction, pictures of recretionl ctivities, etc, Also someone in the church might hve n 8 mm cmer, with which he tkes home movies. n one of our vction Bible schools one of the men in the church volunteered to táke these pictures nd prepred very excellent 8 mm film. These pictoril records cn be used the following yer for publicity purposes. Qunsrrom: Why re records so importnt? They tke gret del of time. A.tswBn: V/ell, flrst of ll, you recll tht Pul sys, "Let ll things be done decently nd in order." But further, these records will id in proper follow-up, future publicity, nd beter plnning for the next yer's school. Remember, leders move on nd records will lso sve time nd energy for those clled on to follow in their trin. For exmple, my wife ws clled upon to superintend vction Bible school in the church where ws directing Christin Eduction. The young couple in chrge of the tsible school the yer before hd left the church nd were on the mission field, but in the files of the church we found very, very dequte records of everything tht hd been done the yer before. ncluded were the nmes of workers who served, the types of curriculum tht were used, some of the problems they fced, nd so forth. This informtion ws invluble for plnning for the present school. QuesrroN: Could you explin more lully whøt you meønt by "The evlutíon of.the totl progrm"? ANswen: As mentioned in nswer to your first question under points in plnning, we ought to strt VBS plnning t the clicse of the cur ent school. This mens tht we should evlute every spect of the progrm. We ought to sk ourselves such questions s these: Were we stisfied with the curriculum mterils? Did we hve enough techers nd workers? Ws our orgniztion stisfctory? Did we keep dequte records? Ws our school publicized sufficiently? Wht bout spce? Did we hve enough room to deprtmentltze cotectly? believe tht t the close of the current school, ll of the workers should meet together. You might set side dy or so following the school to hve specil vction Bible school bnquet to honor the workers. Then, following this bnquet you could divide into deprtmentl groups nd hve ll of the rüorkers sk ech other these questions nd others of similr nture. Then they cn come bck together s generl group to shre their findings. Nturlly ll of the findings nd points of discussion should be recorded by the generl secretry nd used by the vction Bible school plnning committee in prepring for next yer's school. QuesroN: Wht qbout curriculum? Awswen: As suggested erlier, curriculum mteril should be selected well in dvnce of the school. This should be done 'só techers nd workers cn dequtely prepre nd so the publicity cn'be plnned round the theme of the school. The mterils selected should be Christ-centered, Bible-bsed, pupil-relted, well-written, ttrctive, nd correctly grded. QuesrroN:Vht do you men by wellwrítten? ANswen: Well, first of ll, think there ought to be some type of guide book which will help the superintendent in his plnning. This guide book should be prepred so tht workers get n over-view of the school nd it should lso include suggestions nd ides.for plnnhg specific points of the progrm. Also, the techer's mnul should be written in such wy tht there re specific suggestions.for prepring the lessons nd prepring the vrious elements of the progrm. These suggestions when followed, should mke the mteril live for the pupil. And then, finlly, certinly the pupil's mnul must be úritten in such wy tht the pupil cn understd them. They should be designed for specific ge levels nd should include interesting fq i l-m teril tht's cbllenging. (Continued on Pge 16) PAcs 9

10 Q. My church nd its people re not very good exmples of the love of Goil which hve lwys been tught is the center nd soul of Christinity. Tell me is it or is it not? A. 1 John 4:7 sys love is of God nd the following verse sys God is love. Then in the sme chpter, verse 1, John sys, "Beloved if God so loved us, we ought lso to love one nother." Almost the enti e fourth chpter of First John is excellent on the subject. Romns 13:10 sys, "Love worketh no ill..,",2 Cor. 5:14, "The love of Christ constrineth us...", Ephesins 3:19 speks of "the Love of Christ, which psseth knowledge." There re mny other references to the love of God for mn. Since God is love, nd since "God ws in Christ reconciling the world unto himself..." (2 Cor. 5: 19), then without doubt love could definitely be clssiûed s the very soul nd center of Christinity. Q. ws tlking recently with n outstnding figure in the "Bptist" denomintion, nd the subject of revivl ws one of the mny things we tlked bout. He ws telling me bout conducting revivl in one of our outstnding Free Witl Bptist Churches sometime go, nd t the dte of our converstion nother ttbptist" precher ws conducting revivl t the sme church. m wondering the 'why' of this mtter of choice. Do we not hve men of God who re s well qulified spiritully nd otherwise âs ny precher nywhere? A strnge rring to me-those of other ttfithstt re frequenty inviteil to fil ppointments in our denomìntion, but hve yet to her of precher mong the rnks of Free Will Bptists being invited to fill n ppointment -with those of other fiths. \üht do you believe is the reson for Free Will Bptists depending so much on those who slnder our doctrine? A. This hs been bone of contention in the minds nd converstion of mny of our FWB people. cnnot nswer you s to why some of our churches nd their pstors choose men outside our own denomintion for revivls, Bible conferences, etc., unless it is becuse of the nme tht some of these outside men hve mde for themselves s prechers nd expositors of the Word. Perhps few yers bck it could be sid tht we did not hve too mny men qulified cdemiclly. Spiritully, however, our prechers through the yers hve generlly mintined high stndrd. Now Pece 10 Bv Lours H. Mour,roN Coopertive Receipß Are low in.lnuøry After record month in December, Coopertive receipts tumbled to low of $2, in undesignted gifts for the month of Jnury.

ANswBn: Certinly mterils should be prepred nd designed to meet the needs of ech ge level. The minimum grding should be bsed on deprtmentl bsis so tht you re working with speciflc ge group. By ge groups men nursery, kindergrten, primry, Junior, junior high, etc. QuesrroN: Previously you mentioned øn evening school. This ís new ide to mny people m sure. How could you mplify this? ANswen: Mny churches re trying this pln nd re flnding it to be very succesful. Rther thn conducting vction Bible school in the morning s we hve done previously, they ie conducting n evenilg school, beginning perhps t 7:00 in the evening nd running until 9:00. QuesrroN: Wht re the dvntges nd disdvntges ol thß? ANswnn: believe one of the outstnding dvntges is tht you cn conduct vction Bible school for the totl church. Tht is, you cn hve deprtments nd clsses for the very smll children s well s for young people nd dults. Secondly, in this dy nd ge mny of our people re working, including the women. f we conduct n evening school, we cn get both men nd women to help in conducting the vction Bible school. QuesrroN: Those re some ol the dvntges. Wht bout the disdvntges? ANswEn: Probbly one of the outstnding disdvntges is tht we re cutting out prt of ou time. Another disdvntge is tht some people feel tht it runs rther lte in the evening nd smll children should be in bed. However, in my experience hve found tht since children re not going to school nd cn sty up lter, we don't relly hve problem here. n one school techer once told me tht she felt more rested in the evening thn she did in the morning. think one reson for this is tht in the summer time it is generlly cooler in the evening thn during the morning. fowever, think one thing tht we must tke into conside tion in plnning for vction Bible school is the loclity nd the nture of the church or the type of church. Evening schools will work very effectively in some res nd perhps not so effectively P ce 16 in others. One hs to pln on the bsis of his own needs. QuesrroN: Do you hve ny comments regørding follow-up ctivíties? ANswpn: Follow-up is extremely importnt. This is one of the most importnt fctors in the VBS. Mny pupils usully come to vction Bible school who do not come to Sundy school. They should be followed up s Sundy school prospects. Further, ny decisions for slvtion or Christin living should deflnitely be followed up by the pstor, youth leder nd techers in the Sundy school nd vction Bible school. QursrroN: How do you suggest tht we follow them up? A.rswen: Well, we cn follow them up by letter nd by phone, but nothing will tke plce of the specil visit. RebirÌh ond Recovery (Continued from Pge 5) Spin. She is presently supporting Free Will Bptist in Spin, where Protestnt work of every kind must ber persecution from Ctholicism. The Future The future holds mny possibilities for Free Will Bptists in world missions. Her only limittions re self imposed. Her potentil is only bounded by the willingness of those who clim her fith, to live nd prctice it. Her gretest enemy is internl disunity. Afrid of centrliztion becuse of its pprent use in bringing bout merger in which she lost her identity, she hs been overly cutious i orgnizing for effective service. Often refusing to co-operte on mtters bove regionl levels, slow to demnd fully educted ministry; she remins heterogeneous people often finding conflicting positions tken concerning her clssic fith. Perhps it cn be sid with some justiflction, tht mrks of rectionry people hs continued to chrcterize her churches, but it must be remembered tht her rection ws in the direction of her clssic sttement of fith nd not wy from it. t is this fith tht is worthy of proclmtion.
