Cape Town's Commitment (L'Engagement du Cap)
The Third Lausanne Congress for the Evangelization of the World (Cape Town, October 16-25, 2010) brought together 4,200 evangelical leaders from 198 countries. The Cape Town Commitment is the result.
The Cape Town Commitment opens with a clear statement of shared biblical convictions and continues with a call to action. It is the fruit of a slow process, facilitated by the Lausanne Movement, of discerning what the Holy Spirit is saying today to the Churches of all the continents. We offer it with humility.
“Throughout this process we have had the joy of collaborating with the World Evangelical Alliance. "- Extract from the preface
“ The Cape Town Commitment is not a memorial for a moment. He is the conviction of a movement and the voice of a multitude. - Christopher J.-H. Wright, Chairman of the Cape Town 2010 Declaration Working Group
" The Cape Town Commitment is the third reference text of the Lausanne Movement after the Lausanne Declaration of 1974 and the Manila Manifesto of 1989. Text of exceptional maturity that strives to link belief and practice, it should stimulate in an incomparable way the reflection and action of evangelicals in the world. The Cape Town Commitment is therefore called to become another outstanding document of evangelism, capable of enriching Churches of all traditions. "- Extract from the preface to the French edition
Includes final conference address: We have a Gospel to proclaim , delivered by Lindsay Brown and the Lausanne Declaration.
