Fascinating. The bustling, bursting African church has targeted North America. In this case, a Nigerian community. May at least some of our theology shed its pale skin in the collision.
Here’s an excerpt:
“The United States, with its ever-expanding megachurches, influential evangelists and deep religiosity, seems an unlikely mission ground. But the Redeemed Church believes Christianity here has become a lifestyle, not a transforming way of life, and they feel obliged to rescue the people who brought them the faith in the first place.
“There is a vibrancy in Africa,” Akinkoye said. “We are offering that gift back to America.”
