Established in 1846, the World Evangelical Alliance is a network of national evangelical church alliances in 129 countries and over a 100 international evangelical organizations. The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) provides a worldwide identity, voice, and platform to more than 600 million evangelical Christians.
With a global backdrop of serious ecological challenges, growing awareness of the biblical mandate to care for creation, and an increasing need to provide leadership in this arena at a global level, the WEA decided to create the WEA Creation Care Task Force (CCTF) in 2012.
After several years of fruitful collaboration the WEA Creation Care Task Force and Lausanne Creation Care joined together to co-lead one unifed creation care network called the Lausanne/WEA Creation Care Network (LWCCN).
In 2019 the WEA launched the WEA Sustainability Center (WEASC) in the strategic “UN City” of Bonn, Germany. Led my Matthias K. Boehning, the overarching objective of the WEASC is to equip churches and congregations around the world to implement creation care on a daily basis, thereby becoming a strong, legitimate, and unified voice in global sustainability. As leadership of the WEA CCTF and WEASC work together collaboratively, and their combined, integrated, and strategic efforts are advancing the effectiveness of the evangelical community to care for God’s gift of creation.
Scriptures on Creation Care
“The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.”
Through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.
Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
“Everything under heaven belongs to me.”
