Strength to Strength welcomed Joel Nisly and Dru Lattin to discuss the so-called New Apostolic Reformation.
The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), also known as Independent Network Charismatic Christianity is a rapidly-growing and influential global movement led by so-called apostles and prophets who claim an authority like that of the Twelve. While many groups have traditionally used the term apostle to mean one gifted or commissioned as a church planter, this movement views these offices as speaking directly for God.
The teachers and theology from this movement are exerting an influence upon the Anabaptist faith tradition. Our goal is to expose these errors, and call us to contend earnestly for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
An interactive question-and-answer period follows.
