Pentecostal Primitivism Preserved

51bmftgrh4l_ss500_1Cup & Cross Ministries International is happy to announce the publication of Pentecostal Primitivism Preserved.

Entering the era of the New Millennium, the Christian Church faces a great number of new existential dilemmas. Finding their answers is not only essential, but also formational for the future of the global Christian Community. Failure to do so will transform the church into just another nominal organization separated from the leadership of the Holy Spirit and the power of God.

In  attempt to answer the present ecclesial predicaments, this work suggests a way of remembering and returning to the past. Judging from his own Eastern Pentecostal Tradition and personal salvific experience, the author calls the Christian Church to neo-primitivism expressed in the rediscovering and reclaiming of the basic order of the Primitive Church of the first century. Dr.Donev proposes a new understanding of the Pentecostal experience expressed in power, prayer and praxis. Furthermore, reclaiming of the original experience is the answer for the church of the 21st century only if expressed in discipleship after the example of Christ. It is only through such process that the Christian community will be enabled to preserve its own identity and transmit the faith once delivered to the saints to the future generations.

Exclusive Report: Pentecostal Primitivism Preserved

I spoke at the Bulgarian Theological Evangelical Instituted today on the subject of Pentecostal Primitivism. My lecture discussed the Wesleyan Quadrilateral and suggested a new triangular model for the formation of Pentecostal faith consisting of prayer, power and praxis. I spoke for about 20 minutes but regardless of the time the presence of the Holy Spirit was so real that most of the students and teachers were crying. I have never seen anything like this before. After the lecture some of the students ask me to pray for them that God will recover in their lives the power of Pentecost. Before doing this, I warned them that if they do not want God to wake them up in the middle of the night and send them to strange places to preach the Gospel, they should not pray in this prayer. Then we all prayed and cried before the Lord. I am invited to lecture on the same subject next Friday in front of another group of students at the school.
