Welcome to the Pneuma Foundation On-line Resource Center.
My name is James Dettmann, and I would like to introduce you to the ministry of the Pneuma Foundation and tell you a little bit about what we do.
The Pneuma Foundation has come into being for the purpose of providing Biblical resources and information that present the supernatural ministry of God the Holy Spirit and defend the Biblical basis for all of His gifts today. These resources are intended for everyone in the body of Christ, and especially for those ministers and lay workers who are equipping the saints for the work of the ministry (Eph. 4:12). We want to help local churches equip the saints and defend the Pentecostal/charismatic movement as having a great deal to contribute to the body of Christ.
Pentecostals and charismatics have caused a resurgence in the gifts of the Spirit for today. This movement has brought to the fore-front such issues as divine healing, power confrontations with the kingdom of darkness, the prayer of faith, New Testament prophecy, praying in tongues, the five-fold ministry, and the ministry of the miraculous. These issues are often taught without a strong Biblical foundation. This has led to error, extremes, and a weakened witness to other evangelicals. Therefore, our purpose is to help provide a balanced, non-denominational, Scriptural foundation for the gifts of the Spirit. We also desire to promote dialogue with non-charismatic evangelicals in the hopes of bringing us together in greater unity and practice.
So far, our primary project has been a quarterly printed journal called The Pneuma Review. The Pneuma Review is a journal of ministry resources and theology for Pentecostal and charismatic ministries and leaders. Pastors and church leaders from all over world continue to tell us how invaluable this journal is to them. They say that the materials we are publishing simply cannot be found anywhere else. Please consider purchasing a subscription or requesting a trial issue to see for yourself. As we continue to publish The Pneuma Review, we will make much of it available on this on-line resource center.
Welcome to our cyber-home. May you find much here that enriches you in Jesus Christ.
James M. Dettmann, President
