What we believe
As an organization dedicated to cultivating prayer movements in the church worldwide, our faith is deeply rooted in the biblical principles outlined in the Lausanne Covenant.
The Lausanne Covenant is a statement of faith that emerged from the International Congress on World Evangelization held in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1974. It is a unifying document that has been endorsed by thousands of Christian leaders from around the world, representing a wide range of denominations and traditions. The key points of the Lausanne Covenant are given below. At GPI, we believe that these foundational truths are essential to our mission of developing and supporting prayer leadership in the global church.
