dc.description Thesis (Ph.D. (Missiology))--North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, 2007.
dc.description.abstract It is argued in this thesis that the real solution for the problems of the world lies in the progressive realisation of the coming of God's Kingdom in which a crucial role is played by evangelisation through a church in which the Holy Spirit is abundantly active. A church who is in the grip of dead intellectualism and apostasy cannot be God's agent of change. God calls the people of the church to start with themselves. Only after they have seen their own need for repentance and have eventually found new vigour in their spiritual life can they reach out to the world in its depravity to call it to repentance. The vibrant life that the church experienced at different stages in her history was a gift from the triune God. The people in the church must, however, accept their responsibility in making revival the goal of their most earnest endeavours. The Bible must be integrated into the very core of their existence so as to exercise from there its life-changing influence. They must consistently offer most fervent prayers each for their own salvation and for that of the world. Godliness must come to fruition, to be demonstrated in each thought, in all communications and in the whole of life. While each makes his contribution to change no one must for one second doubt that the triune God is Himself the One Who supports all that is done in His name.
