Pauline House Churches
BeschreibungAfter the apostolic age there was need for strategic plan to spread the gospel. Paul, with the assistance of other Christians, established house churches in various cities. House churches became basic units for the establishment of Christianity. This book exposes the development, nature and activities of house churches in Pauline Christianity. It further argues that Pauline house churches have a potential to speak to our time as they feature in AFM, one of the leading Pentecostal churches in Zimbabwe. Though the setting of Pauline house churches seem to differ with what we find in AFM, they still play a crucial role of meeting the spiritual needs of the members. This book is recommended to students of religious studies and theology, pastors, lay persons and academics.
