1st. Resolved, That we cordially approve of the late organization of the American and Foreign Bible Society, which we regard as constituted in obedience to the providence of God, calling our denomination to endeavor, by unfettered and untrammelled action, to give the Bible, in true and faithful versions unto all the nations of the earth. For, the field is the world.
2nd Resolved, That the formation of Bible Societies, auxillary to the A. and B. F. Society, be recommended to each Church within the bounds of this Association.
3rd Resolved, That we think it inexpedient at this time to appoint an Agent to visit the Churches in our body, to explain the objects of the A. and F. B. Society, as recommended by the Hopkinsville Church."
