The Cape Town Commitment, issuing from The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization, consists of two parts. It opens with The Cape Town Confession of Faith, followed by The Cape Town Call to Action. A full explanation of its beginnings and of how it reflects the voices of evangelicals from 198 nations, is found in the Foreword.
Phyllis Bennett, Director of the Women’s Center for Ministry at Western Seminary, has compiled a study guide to each part, based on the Inductive Bible Study method. It is primarily intended for North American women’s groups, and is offered as a free download.
