Ecumenical Roots of the Four Movements 

Ecumenical Jews, Evangelicals, Charismatics & Catholics Together

The Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE)


2 Thessalonians 2:3

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

From March 13-15, 2000 the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE) 1 of North America was  held in Atlanta, Georgia.  The LCJE originated in the The Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization (LCWE) 2, an international movement that was formed for the purpose of uniting Christian churches to evangelize the world before the year A.D. 2000. A requirement for membership in the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism is agreement with the Lausanne Covenant. 

The Lausanne Covenant  3 is a document that was written and signed by 1,972 out of 2,300 of those in attendance of the 1974 Lausanne Congress. Discrepancy on the actual number of signers is found on another page of their website, which states all 2,300 attendees signed the Covenant. The 1974 Lausanne Congress included Protestant and Catholic leaders from 150 nations, who attended by the invitation of the committee headed by Billy Graham

"The Lausanne Story"4 reports that the Covenant was responsible for the formation of the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism. 


The Committee has never regarded itself as the Custodian of the Covenant. This was given freely to the world and allowed to make its own way.

  • The Covenant has been translated locally into more than 20 languages.
  • It has been adopted by hundreds of churches and parachurch agencies as their basis of operations and cooperation.
  • It has led to formations of a number of national and regional movements in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, North America and Latin America.  It has stimulated movements such as the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE) and the Chinese Coordinating Committee for World Evangelization (CCCOWE).
  • It has been the basis for international consultations on more than 30 subjects, many of whose findings are published in Lausanne Occasional Papers.

All of this has meant that people worked at its concepts and made them their own locally. The Covenant has become a catalyst for many cooperative movements, mostly ad hoc and short term and non-competitive with others."

The LCJE in return has facilitated expansion of the global Lausanne Movement.

"The Covenant has been translated locally into more than 20 languages. It has been adopted by hundreds of churches and parachurch agencies as their basis of operations and cooperation. It has led to formations of a number of national and regional movements in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, North America and Latin America.  It has stimulated movements such as the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE) and the Chinese Coordinating Committee for World Evangelization (CCCOWE)."

The Global Consultation on World Evangelism (GCOWE)

Jay Gary was Program Director for the Lausanne Movement and organized the 1989 Global Consultation on World Evangelism (GCOWE) through A.D. 2000 and Beyond, which launched the A.D. 2000 Movement.  During GCOWE, the Latin American delegation submitted a written statement expressing strong objections to the inclusion of Roman Catholic clergy as conference participants:

"The religious political force of the Roman Catholic Church is using all means available and is in fact the most fierce opponent of all evangelistic efforts on our part. . .Cooperating with Catholics goes beyond our historical and biblical commitment." 5 

In 1991, Jay Gary created the Bimillennial Global Interaction Network, jointly led by Paul Guest of the World Association for Celebrating the Year 2000, and Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General of the U. N.  Robert Muller is also a Spiritualist and author of The Birth Of A Global Civilization and the World Core Curriculum, a program which is used globally to indoctrinate children as World Citizens and first and foremost have them partake of mysticism and pantheism. 
For Dr. Robert G. Muller See: World Vision: Global Education; Letter
The Star Of 2000, written in 1994 by Jay Gary, received published endorsements from evangelical leaders such as Bill Bright, President of Campus Crusade for Christ, and Dr. Paul Cedar, President of the Evangelical Free Church.  Paul Cedar is also Executive Chairman of the International Lausanne Committee and Chairman of Mission America. Following the link next to Dr. Cedar on the International Lausanne Committee [ 7] takes one to the U.S. Lausanne Committee [Mission America Facilitation Committee].  Here the history of the ecumenical movement is described in a manner which brings to the forefront the involvement of Evangelical Protestantism in their move into the arms of the One World Religion.

"In December of 1995, some 160 evangelical leaders from throughout the United States gathered in Lisle, Illinois at the invitation of Dr. Billy Graham, Dr. Bill Bright and other Christian leaders. This significant meeting inspired the beginning of The Lighthouse Movement.8

The meeting, based on the 1974 Lausanne Covenant 9 continued a commitment to carry the Christian Gospel to all corners of the world and represented a renewal of the Covenant by these Christian leaders. The leaders committed themselves to joining together to accomplish the goal of praying for and introducing Christ to every person in America by year-end 2000.

In cooperation with the AD2000 & Beyond Movement 10, the National Association of Evangelicals 11 and the Lausanne Movement, they organized under the banner of Mission America, a unified coalition of churches, denominations, parachurch ministries and ministry networks working together--calling their initiative Celebrate Jesus 2000--to mobilize the church to pray for, care for and lovingly share Christ with every person in America by year-end 2000.

With the vision of Celebrate Jesus 2000, in January 1999, the coalition launched the Lighthouse strategy knows as The Lighthouse Movement to accomplish this goal.


In July 1974, the International Congress on World Evangelization held a pinnacle gathering in Lausanne, Switzerland. The 10-day event, focusing on the theme of "Let the Earth Hear His Voice," brought together more than 2,400 evangelical leaders from 150 nations and ignited a passion and renewed commitment to carry the Christian Gospel to all corners of the world.

By the close of this unprecedented meeting, the Lausanne Covenant, a 3,000-word document had been written and signed by 1,972 of the attendees. It affirmed 15 points including the Purpose of God, Authority and Power of the Bible, Christian Social Responsibility, the Urgency of the Evangelistic Task and the Return of Christ.

The document's final paragraph called each one to "enter into a solemn covenant with God and with each other to pray, to plan and to work together for the evangelization of the whole world." For many, this would be uncharted territory. Some had never worked with people outside their own denominations or language groups.

Dr. Billy Graham, serving as the honorary chairman of the congress, urged everyone in the audience to go from Lausanne and "do the work of an evangelist." He called for rededication and total commitment to the task ahead. In 1975, the U.S. Lausanne Committee formed as a part of the International Lausanne Movement.

For 15 years, those touched at the Lausanne conference worked to implement the principles and challenges set forth by the conference's dynamic leadership.

In 1989, Lausanne II, the second International Congress on World Evangelization convened by the Lausanne Committee in Manila, Philippines, became yet another place for inspiration and unity. Christian leaders from 150 nations were brought together again, and were commissioned to take the "spirit of Lausanne" back to their nations - with renewed vigor - as the millennium drew to a close.

Following Lausanne II, the Lord impressed upon American Church leaders to respond to the urgency of the "Great Commission" and the task of evangelism in a new era. As a prayerful response to the Manila Conference, the AD2000 & Beyond Movement formed in 1990. The AD2000 & Beyond Movement convened a national consultation in Phoenix, Arizona and introduced the concept of citywide strategies for the United States.

In 1993, the U.S. Lausanne Committee convened a Prayer Summit in Portland, Oregon attracting some 300 Christian leaders. The committee adopted the basic agenda of the AD2000 & Beyond Movement for the remainder of the 20th Century.

Mission America was officially launched and established an office in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1996 and began promoting the national evangelism initiative Celebrate Jesus 2000. 12  Mission American began a radio program to highlight evangelism/outreach efforts in America and the ministry efforts of the Coalition members. The Coalition also established an Internet presence to encourage communication among coalition members and the entire Christian community.

In 1997 the Mission America Facilitation Committee called on Coalition members and staff to focus more intentionally on Celebrate Jesus 2000 with the goal of "praying for and sharing Christ with every person in America by year-end 2000." The Mission America coalition grew during 1997 and 1998 to more than 300 national leaders.

In 1999 Mission America launched The Lighthouse Movement, calling Christians to establish their homes, churches and businesses as Lighthouses to pray for, care for and share Christ with every person in America by year-end 2000. Mission America continues to grow, now some 400 national Christian leaders, representing more than 80 denominations (representing some 200,000 local churches), over 300 parachurch ministries and 58 ministry networks."


Jews, Evangelicals, Charismatics & Catholics Together

In 1993, Paul Cedar put his signature to the document,  Evangelicals and Catholics Together: The Christian Mission in the Third Millennium. This document has opened the doorway to set aside Scriptural foundations for Evangelical Christians and unite with Roman Catholicism to evangelize the world by 2000 A.D. It also opened the doorway to work with all who claim to belong to Christ, whether Biblically sound or not.  The ECT Document stated: "Evangelicals and Catholics are brothers and sisters in Christ" and "existing divisions that obscure the one Christ and hinder the one mission of the Church" were confessed as "sins against the unity that Christ intends for all his disciples." For Further review of Signers SEE: Evangelicals and Catholics Together.

This ecumenical strategy is now being proposed by the LCJE, supposedly for the sake of Jewish evangelism. "To join [LCJE] you need to agree to the Lausanne Covenant. . ."   

The Chairman of the LCJE International, Tuvya Zaretsky 13, is the Chief of Station of Jews for Jesus in Los Angeles 14 and also holds a position on the International Lausanne Committee. 15  The Lausanne Committee for World Evangelism website identifies past speakers for the LCJE to have included: 

"Speakers at our conferences have included Louis Goldberg, Arnold Fruchtenbaum, Moishe Rosen, Art Glasser, Dan Juster, Stuart Dauermann, Mitch Glaser, Susan Perlman, Michael Schiffman, Paul Cedar, and others."

  • Moishe Rosen 18 - Founder and first Executive Director of Jews for Jesus 19 [San Francisco, CA]
  • Susan Perlman 20- First Assistant to the Executive Director of Jews for Jesus
  • Arnold Fructenbaum  21- Director of Ariel Ministries
  • Art Glasser 22- 1970 - Joined missions faculty of Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California
    1971-1980 - Dean of the School of World Mission at Fuller Theological Seminary 
    1972, 1980 - Attended the meeting of the World Council of Church's Commission of World Mission and Evangelism
    1974 - Attended the International Congress on World Evangelization in Lausanne, Switzerland
  • Stuart Dauermann 23- Congregational Leader of Ahavat Zion Messianic Synagogue in Beverly Hills, California, Chairman of the Theology Committee for the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations, and President of Hashivenu 24, "an organization promoting spiritual maturity and Jewish authenticity in the Messianic movement." Doctoral student at Fuller Theological Seminary, where he also teaches. Hashivenu is located on the campus of Fuller Theological Seminary.

Conference speakers for the March, 2000 LCJE included some of the past speakers: 

Dr Kai Kjaer-Hansen [Dir. LCJE International],

Tuvya Zaretsky, Pres. LCJE International, Jews for Jesus [Los Angeles], 

Jim Sibley [Southern Baptist Convention], 

Susan Perlman [Jews for Jesus, San Francisco],

Mitch Glaser [Chosen People Ministries], 

Louis Goldberg [Jews for Jesus, NY], 

Barry Leventhal [Southern Theological Seminary], 

Boaz Johnson [Tsemach Institute], 

Art Glasser [Fuller Theological Seminary], 

Fred Klett [Dir. CHAIM Ministries], 

Josef Koelner [Temple Aron Kodesh], 

Russ Resnik [President, Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations].

Hashivenu is located on the campus of Fuller Theological Seminary. As will be seen it plays an important role in the development of  the Messianic, Judaism and the ecumenical movement.  The Core Principles of Hashivenu include:

1. Messianic Judaism is a Judaism, and not a cosmetically altered "Jewish-style" version of what is extant in the wider Christian community.
2. G-d's particular relationship with Israel is expressed in the Torah, G-d's unique covenant with the Jewish people.
3. Yeshua is the fullness of Torah.
4. The Jewish people are "us" not "them."
5. The richness of the rabbinic tradition is a valuable part of our heritage as Jewish people.

"The board of Hashivenu includes Mark Kinzer, Paul Saal, Martin Thuna, Rich Nichol, Bob Chenoweth, and Reb Meir. . ."

In association with Hashivenu, The magazine, Boundaries [ ] is published by Paul Saal, who is also on the Steering Committee of the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations and on the Board of Hashivenu. In the current issue of Boundaries, Saal laments the fact that Messianic Jews are in danger of losing their Jewish identity.

A New Perspective on a Changing Jewish World
But will your children be Jewish?
by Paul L. Saal

"As we approach the 21st century this is a question that most serious-minded Jews are asking one another. The statistics are clear, though the general population is increasing, worldwide Jewry is on a decline, and nowhere more so than in the United States. In a culture that guarantees what you want, when you want it, Judaism is but one more choice on the religious smorgasbord. Why be weighed down then by the schmaltz of tradition, observance and expectations, when the new practices of universal faith are so trim, utilitarian and easy to digest. Will your children be Jewish? For Messianic Jews this question resonates even louder."

Hashivenu's "Favorite Links" include: Messianic Jewish Alliance of America [MJAA]

In 1999, LCJE held its sixth international conference from August 12-17, at Hofstra University on Long Island, NY. The 130 participants from around the world produced a statement 25 which defined Messianic believers as "Jewish" rather than  Christian:

"Those of us who are Jewish share in the challenges confronting our people and stand with them in the need to strengthen and preserve our God-given identity. We also recognize that our faith in Yeshua is seen by many as a threat to Jewish identity and survival. Yet we believe that the core of Jewish identity is tied to a purpose and a divine calling that is fulfilled only in Yeshua--to be reconciled to God and to be a light to the nations for his glory. We therefore reject the commonly held view that Jews who believe in Jesus are no longer Jewish. . .Those of us who are Gentiles affirm that Jews who believe in Yeshua do not forfeit their Jewish identity. . .As Jews and Gentiles united by faith in Yeshua, we recognize the right of Jewish believers in Yeshua to maintain a recognizable Jewish identity. . ." 

Paul's letters rebuked the false teaching that converts to Jesus Christ must retain their Jewish identity and traditions:

Romans 2:28-29 "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God."

"For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek. . ." Gal. 3:28

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things become new."  II Cor. 5:17

The LCJE's insistence on maintaining "a recognizable Jewish identity" reminded us of Pope John Paul's insistence that unity with Evangelicals did not imply there would be any relinquishment of his absolute authority over all of Christendom:

"Pope John Paul II said yesterday that he is willing to seek agreement with other Christian denominations on the future role of the papacy. The pope made his offer in a 115-page encyclical, 'That They All May Be One,' which is dedicated to the search for unity among Christian churches that split from each other during the past thousand years. . .The pope made clear he would not accept a symbolic papacy without teeth and that Rome would have to hold the primary place among Christians. He also said a pope should have the authority to make infallible declarations regarding the basic tenets of faith." [San Francisco Chronicle, 5/31/95]

Considering the present commitment of Evangelicals to "unity in diversity" with Messianic and Orthodox Jews, the Roman Catholic Church, Pentecostals and Charismatics as well, and that none have  intentions of relinquishing their religious traditions, it appears that true Christians would have to make some radical compromises of their Scriptural principles in order to achieve the desired unity. For more on this issue please see From> Hebrew Roots/Hebraic Roots/Messianic  > From The Spreading Hebrew Roots Series > Toward Jerusalem Council II ; The Ecumenical Toward Jerusalem Council II  ; PK, MJAA, UMJC & Toward Jerusalem Council II

Can this be the reason Paul exhorted the beleaguered Galatians to "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Gal. 5:1

Many Evangelical, Pentecostal, Charismatic and Catholics and other ecumenically minded leaders are members of the Council for National Policy, the 500+ member organization which plans the strategy of the Christian Right in the United States. Profiles of CNP founders and past/present officers and members reveals that nearly ALL are affiliated with such organizations as the Knights of Malta, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Unification Church of Sun Myung Moon, the Church of Scientology, Freemasonry, CIA-Nazi, the Church Universal & Triumphant, the Klu Klux Klan, Templeton Foundation, and other cults and organizations. This will perhaps explain the ease with which many are seduced into embracing  false doctrine and the One World Religion. They don't really belong to Jesus Christ.

John 10: 26-30 

"But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one."

The following articles will expand on the global ecumenical movement including the Hebrew Roots/Messianic movements, their connections and roots. They will include discussion of what Dean Cozzens called the Four Waves --1.The Pentecostal Movement  2.The Faith-Healing Movement  3.The Charismatic Movement  4.The Hebrew Movement, and will reveal how each are inter-connected and appear to be the way that 2 Thessalonians 2:3 will be fulfilled. 

2 Thessalonians 2:3

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"
