  • Building Bridges between Evangelical and Charismatic Expressions of Faith­ — We encourage non-charismatics to be open to the supernatural dimensions of the Spirit without fearing the extremes, and charismatics to seek holiness of life, balance and discernment of true and false manifestations. We believe that there are many more genuine supernatural manifestations from God than many evangelicals are willing to acknowledge and fewer genuine manifestations from God than many charismatics are willing to admit. There is a balance between the two poles.
