The network is the result of years of international ministry and fellowship among many Christian ministers who oppose the modern, liberal, and aberrant position, of many denominations.
We are thankful to the legacy of many Spirit-filled ministers, such as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, who could observe the well advanced tragedy in the last century: “The terrible, tragic fallacy of the last hundred years has been to think that all man’s troubles are due to his environment, and that to change the man you have nothing to do but change his environment. That is a tragic fallacy. It overlooks the fact that it was in Paradise that man fell.”
Whilst the network had existed in an informal way for several years it began to form a clear structure in 2015 through conversations between several international church leaders. It became clear that some of the existing informal international networks could be strengthened by being encompassed within a suitable international structure. It was decided that an organisation should be formed which could facilitate the expanding work and provide a home for like-minded people. Bishop Steven Lyn Evans was invited by senior church leaders to become the Network’s first Chairman.
In late 2017 the network included Reformed theology alongside their Evangelical and Charismatic emphasis. Bishop Steven Lyn Evans commented: “For most of my life I had adopted a mankind centred theology. Having had an ongoing desire to be Biblical and to lead people into Biblical truth, I was so blessed to be led to appreciate the deeper God centred truth of the Reformed position.”
We are reminded that whoever, or wherever genuine Christians are: “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” (Ephesians 4:4-6).
