about the missions
Since the early 1970s when our first mission began in Fiji, the Revival Centres have been thankful for the opportunity to take the gospel all over the world.

Our ‘mission fields’ have been most rewarding as they are often at the forefront of rapid growth in numbers of people receiving the gospel.
The opportunity for some of us to have witnessed masses of people being baptised in one go and being filled with the Holy Spirit is not something we will soon forget.

Our missions work with an emphasis on equipping local people to run their own assemblies. We have no standing “missionaries” as such, preferring to train and encourage the locals in the gospel and in church leadership, at the same time endeavouring to avoid a paternalistic approach.
We support them by regular visits, particularly from pastors and officers, but also by groups of assembly members and young peoples groups. These visits are rewarding – both for the ‘first world’ visitors and their ‘third world’ hosts.

Papua New Guinea
From this village the message of salvation – repentance, baptism and receiving the Holy Spirit – grew. It was not long before hundreds and hundreds of people from many villages in the district were experiencing revival in their lives.
The gospel is one of signs, wonders and miracles. People were being healed and their lives changed for the better. Today we have over 220 main centres throughout Papua New Guinea with many thousands of Spirit-filled brothers and sisters living the life that comes from believing and experiencing the miraculous.
