Endorsements & Reviews-

"I send my greetings to those gathered during these days in Scotland for the centennial of the first Edinburgh Missionary Conference, which is now acknowledged to have given birth to the modern ecumenical movement. May we all renew our commitment to work humbly and patiently, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to live again together our common apostolic heritage."
His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI

"Let us not forget that the Lord Jesus Christ has stirred up in Christians a deep yearning for unity. He has enabled us to see that this longing is found among so many Christians of different traditions. It is a sign that this Spirit has been at work in all of us, prompting us to recognize that in this too we must obey his will."
Prof. Dr. Nifon, Metropolitan of Targoviste, Romania

"There are some moments in our lives when we realize, in a very special way, that we are participating in the triune God's mission in the world. Today in the World Council of Churches we give thanks to God for how this hundredth anniversary of the contemporary ecumenical movement brings us back to where we came from and sends us out to where we need to be."
Rev. Dr. Olav Fykse Tveit, General Secretary of the World Council of Churches

"Many of those who came to this delightful city as delegates in 1910 were evangelicals. And as today we rejoice that the church is now global in a way that they saw only by faith and not by sight, we notice that many of those churches in Asia and Africa and Latin America, unrepresented by national believers in 1910, but now so wonderfully vibrant and growing, are the fruit of their labors and lives. That is God's gracious doing, and we praise him."
Rev. Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, Secretary General, World Evangelical Alliance

"We acknowledge the historical significance of Edinburgh 1910 and rejoice that we have been counted among those gathered together in Edinburgh 2-6 June 2010 to mark the centennial. We have taken our rightful place on the landscape of contemporary Christianity and affirm the significance of the global mission call joining a diverse fellowship of believers in Christ."
Statement by Pentecostal participants
