International Call to Repent: Missions must remain Biblical July 13, 2007

Posted by moverstreet in Bible & Theology, Church, Missions/Evangelism/Apologetics.

Chris Wright, International Director of Langham Partnership International and Chair of the Lausanne Theology Working Group, has warned that the world church must become more “biblical” or else risk “a betrayal of the gospel”.

The spirit of his address is summed in his conclusion:  “We need repentance and renewal in the church, as well as renewed passion for world mission. Otherwise, we may become as the Lausanne Covenant put it, ‘a stumbling block to evangelism…a betrayal of the gospel.’”

Wright serves under world renowned theologian and evangelist John Stott, and he has a unique link between the Langham Partnership International and the Lausanne movement. Stott is the the founder and honorary president of Langham Partnership as well as serving alongside Billy Graham at the first Lausanne Congress in 1974.
