The Lausanne Movement

"The Whole Church taking the Whole Gospel to the Whole World"
The story of Lausanne begins with Rev. Billy Graham. A powerful preacher, Graham quickly rose to prominence in the 1940's and 50's to become America's foremost evangelist. As he began preaching internationally, Graham developed a passion to "unite all evangelicals in the common task of the total evangelization of the world."

One of the major undertakings of the 1974 Congress was the development of the Lausanne Covenant. Drafted in large part by a committee chaired by Stott, the Covenant is a stirring articulation of Christian conviction and mission and helped set the stage for new collaborative efforts among Christians. On the last day of the Congress, the Covenant was signed by Graham and Anglican Bishop Jack Dain and subsequently affirmed by an overwhelming majority of participants. To this day, the Lausanne Covenant serves as a basis for unity and a call to global evangelization.
