Cape Town Commitment is Here!

The long-awaited Cape Town Commitment has now been officially released to the general public!


Why is this such a big deal?  The historic gatherings of the Lausanne Movement have always produced documents of profound significance in terms of both their theological affirmations as well as their practical, missional commitments. In the spirit of the Lausanne Covenant of 1974 and the Manilla Manifesto of 1989 comes the Cape Town Committment of 2010, which engages in the emerging generation.  It is described as “the new banner for Lausanne and models for the global Church what the literature of a movement should look like.”  Literally thousands of Christian leaders around the world have spoken into this process.

To understand it better, read a post from “The Ramblings“, an acquaintance I made in Cape Town last October who works with Trinity International Baptist Mission among the Nepalese people of the Chicago area.

From the Executive Chair of the Lausanne Movement, Doug Birdsall, comes these words: “This is truly a declaration of faith and a call to action from the global Church to each of us, and for all those whom we lead.  May God bless you as together we seek to bring a fresh challenge to the global Church to bear witness to Jesus Christ and all his teaching, in every part of the world, in every sphere of society, and in the realm of ideas.”
