Overview

The Cape Town Commitment opens with a clear statement of shared biblical convictions, and then sounds a call to action. It is the fruit of an unhurried process, facilitated by The Lausanne Movement, to discern what the Holy Spirit is saying to the churches of each continent.

We offer it in a humble spirit.
