We will continue our search for Jesus in the churches by talking about the Third Wave. This was a term coined by the Fuller professor Dr. C. Peter Wagner in the 1990's.
The Third Wave is associated with the current Charismatic revival churches. Is this phenomenon real? Is it Biblical?
For over ten years I have asked this question.
In the coming weeks we will explore what I have found. I especially would like to hear from you on what you have found and/or experienced in the Third Wave.
Dr. Wagner says the First Wave revival were the ones in the early 1900's like the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles and the Welsh Revival (in Wales of course).
The second wave, according to Dr. Wagner, was the Charismatic Renewal in some Protestant mainline and Catholic churches in the 1960's and 70's.
And now he says, we are in the Third Wave.
Next blog we will find out the characteristics of a "Third Wave" church.
