The Holy Spirit in Pentecostal Mission: The Shaping of Mission Awareness and Practice"
This study investigates the role of the Holy Spirit in mission formation and practices among Pentecostal Christians. Conversion and spiritual formation, encounters with God, experience of healing and the miraculous, and the sense of calling and empowerment shape mission awareness. In practice, this spirituality is expressed particularly in evangelism, in the establishment of local congregations, in signs and wonders, and in the reproduction of the empowerment cycle. Pentecostals are encouraged to remain faithful to their distinctives, gain a broader perspective of the Spirit’s work, expand their understanding of mission, and maintain a creative tension between pneumatology and eschatology.
