The Lausanne Creation Care Network exists to empower Christian individuals and churches all over the globe to take action on creation care.
At the Cape Town Commitment of 2010, Lausanne Movement world leaders included a strong statement on creation care. It reads:
“We are also commanded to care for the earth and all its creatures, because the earth belongs to God, not to us. We do this for the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the creator, owner, sustainer, redeemer and heir of all creation…If Jesus is Lord of all the earth, we cannot separate our relationship to Christ from how we act in relation to the earth. For to proclaim the gospel that says ‘Jesus is Lord’ is to proclaim the gospel that includes the earth, since Christ’s Lordship is over all creation. Creation care is a thus a gospel issue within the Lordship of Christ. The Cape Town Commitment II-B-6, I-7
