Miracles and Christian Theology

Christian theology teaches us that the Church, an outpost of God’s Kingdom in the earth, has an obligation to witness and defend the truth. We live in a fallen world and must work to keep the world from falling under the influence of the devil. In the New Testament, the church bears witness and defend the truth by bringing people to God.

Christianity’s long apostolic tradition includes missions, evangelism, and spiritual warfare. Today, global charismatic Christianity has permeated Christian practice, reinvigorating a militant subject that was once regarded as irrelevant. Prayer, a key weapon in spiritual warfare, is at the heart of redemptive praxis.

Miracles are a common part of African Christian experience. Millions of believers claim to have experienced a miracle. The book Miracles, by Craig Keener, describes this phenomenon. The author traces the earliest Christian accounts in Africa. Miracles were widely accepted by indigenous people. As Christianity spread, Africans encountered opposition from missionaries. This led to the birth of indigenous churches. These churches were precursors to the current Pentecostal movements in Africa.

Miracles are a vital part of Christian theology. They inspire faith and give believers hope in the power of God. Miracles also serve as a demonstration of the divinity of Jesus. During worship services, Christians often pray for supernatural manifestations in order to testify that Jesus is God.
