Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches and Ecumenism: An Interview with Mel Robeck

  A conversation with Professor and Pentecostal Statesman Cecil M. Robeck, Jr.   PneumaReview.com: As a Pentecostal, how do you define ecumenism?

Pentecostalism and Ecumenism: Past, Present, and Future (Part 5 of 5) by Amos Yong

Amos Yong challenges classical Pentecostals to re-examine what ecumenism really is. V. Pentecostalism and Ecumenism: Future Prospects and Tasks My conclusion is that Pentecostals need the larger Church even as the larger Church needs Pentecostalism.

Amos Yong challenges classical Pentecostals to re-examine what ecumenism really is. II. Classical Pentecostal Objections to Ecumenism Given this biblically defined ecumenism [Editor’s note: please see part 1 in the Winter 2001 issue], then, why is it that most Pentecostals remain staunchly anti-ecumenical? While many reasons have been given, three stand out as representing a […]
