Churches are critical to developing economies. They often constitute the social security system of developing nations. Churches take street urchins aka “area boys” off the streets; they reach out to sex workers, act as ameliorators for mental health challenges, organise conferences for SMEs, set up hospitals, set up schools, feed the hungry, take care of[…]
If you ask the average Pentecostal what Pentecostalism is he’ll probably tell you it’s a Christian denomination defined by the experience of speaking in tongues as evidence of in-filing of the Holy Spirit.
