Abstract:
Pentecostal spirituality in relationality is a renewal approach to union with God through the works of Christ and the Spirit. This thesis re-envisions Land’s apocalyptic approach to Pentecostal spirituality, which is centred on a passion for the kingdom of God, through a lens of relationality in theological anthropology. By transforming and reconfiguring Pentecostal orthodoxy, orthopathy and orthopraxy, the renewal approach elevates apocalyptic Pentecostal spirituality to the level of relationality for union with God in Christ through the Spirit. That is, the renewal approach attempts to build Pentecostal spirituality upon the relationality that is grounded first in an anthropological understanding of union with God, and second in a dialogue with Spirit-Christology in the trinitarian concept. A passion for union with God is the heart of Pentecostal spirituality, because relationality for union with God reaches deep into Pentecostal beliefs, affections and practices. The union with God embraces both the Western concept of justification and the Eastern idea of theosis or deification. As a synthesis of the West and the East, such union is both instantaneous and progressive; it begins with regeneration, is transformed by sanctification, is embodied by Spirit baptism, and is achieved by Christ’s return and glorification.
