Transnational Word of Faith Networks

The Harvest Ministry, an independent Fijian Pentecostal church that sends missionaries to East Africa, Asia, Europe and the Pacific, sees itself as embedded in a transnational community of Christians sharing a common “kingdom culture.” Transnational Pentecostal networks are often seen by scholars and believers as a vehicle for disembedding individuals from local social groups and promoting individual-centered moral systems. Fijians, Papua New Guineans and East Africans use similar themes and images in sermons. But there are significant differences in meaning leading to tensions between groups indicating that local identities are reinforced. All groups stress the importance of community.
