About "The Cape Town Commitment: A Confession of Faith and a Call to Action"
In October 2010, over 4,000 Christian leaders from 200 countries met in Cape Town, South Africa, to discuss critical issues of our time as they relate to the Church and evangelization. This was the Third Lausanne Congress, convening nearly 35 years after the original Lausanne Congress in 1974, called by Billy Graham. "The Cape Town Commitment is not the memorial of a moment. It is the conviction of a Movement and the voice of a multitude. It distils a vast quantity of input from the global Church. We profoundly hope and pray that we are hearing not just the voice of Cape Town 2010, but the voice of our Lord Jesus Christ who walked among us there." --Christopher J. H. Wright, Chair, Cape Town 2010 Statement Working Group. Includes Lindsay Brown's closing address "We have a Gospel to Proclaim. Prominent authors involved in the Lausanne Movement include: John Stott, John Piper, Ajith Fernando, Vaughan Roberts, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Rebecca Manley Pippert.
