John KpiKpi God's New Tribe – A Christian Book Review

A regular speaker at newfrontiers conferences, John KpiKpi is a man dear to my heart. He is someone who has run after his dream and is well on the way to seeing it fulfulled. John leads a church in Ghana, and oversees the work of newfrontiers in West Africa.His book is well summarised on the newfrontiers resource site as follows:God is about a great work in the earth which encompasses all the tribes and nations of the world. But just what is the nature of this work and what is God's goal? What … [Read more...]

After T4G What About "Together on a Mission 06"

Now that I have finally booked my place at the annual newfrontiers conference, I've decided it is safe to share it with you. There is every possibility this conference will sell out this year.

Lloyd-Jones on Baptism with the Holy Spirit

A little known fact about the Doctor who passed away 25 years ago yesterday is that he was in some ways indirectly a father of the modern charismatic movement in the UK. Pastor after pastor in newfrontiers churches spoke of attending Westminster Chapel or the Doctor's Ministers Fraternal. Not only did they find some of the clearest expositional teaching imaginable, but they found a teaching that for many of them sounded strange to their ears. Entirely consistently with his puritan roots, the … [Read more...]

John Kpikpi is a real man of faith and prayer who heads up that whole region. His gentleness and devotion to the cause of Christ impacted us greatly when he came to London and preached at … [Read more...]

Know your denominations and church groupings: newfrontiers

Pseudo-Polymath asks for an explanation of what it is that leads to us having divisions in the body of Christ. I thought I would spend a few moments explaining what it is about the family of churches I am a part of newfrontiers that draws me to be so glad to be a part of it.It is a FAMILY- not so much a denomination as a relationship based group of churches who work together and build team both within individual churches and between groups of churches. I love being cared for an having a part … [Read more...]
