The Metamorphosis of Nigerian Pentecostalism

From Signs and Wonders in the Church to Service and Influence in Society

(p.160) 8 The Metamorphosis of Nigerian Pentecostalism
Spirit and Power

Danny McCain

Oxford University Press

Nigerian Pentecostalism is a dynamic movement, with subtle changes of emphasis, beliefs and strategies. Within the modern Nigerian Pentecostal movement, there is an ongoing broadening of emphasis—from just saving souls to saving the society; from signs and wonders in the church, to service and influence in the society. In this chapter McCain details how the bases for these changes are articulated by three highly respected national Pentecostal leaders whose ministries are having an observable impact on community revitalization and business and government, and in the process provides a model for other Pentecostal churches.
