Welcome to PRMI!
This ministry is part of the great wave of the Holy Spirit that is advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ world wide.
Our historic roots are in the Presbyterian and Reformed stream of the Christian Faith but we are called to serve the whole Church of Jesus Christ. PRMI began as an outgrowth of the charismatic renewal that swept the Presbyterian church in the 1950s through the 1970s.
Our members and participants come from many different denominational backgrounds.
We are as international, cross cultural, and multi-racial as the Kingdom of God.
We are not a church nor a denomination but are committed to serving the Church, the Body of Christ.
We are an independent ministry with nonprofit status in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.
We work with
- denominations or
who are committed to the basic foundation of our Biblical Christian Faith as expressed in the Universal Creeds of the Christian Church.
Our founding purpose and the role that we are called to in the advancement of the Gospel, is to be the means for God the Father to fulfill His promises of how the Church is to be able to accomplish the humanly impossible mission of fulfilling the Great Commission.
While he was with them, he declared, "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait there for what my Father promised, which you heard about from me. For John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." (Acts 1:4-5 NET.)
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts of the earth." (Acts 1:8 NET.)
This is the heart of our vision statement and what we are all about.
This is our God given and mandated niche in the vast work of the Kingdom of God.
We are convinced through
- church history,
- our own internal experience
- as well as the teachings of the Bible,
that learning about and growing in the experience of the person and work of the Holy Spirit is the God given essential for the Church being the Church and for men and women being witnesses to Jesus Christ.
Welcome to this great move of God that takes extraordinary diverse, unique and trans-cultural forms, but all have their beginnings in Jesus who promises us the Holy Spirit as the means of our being His witnesses.
We are a growing worldwide fellowship and we look forward to you joining us in this movement. From the work of prayer to mission outreach we have many ways for you to become involved and discover your role in God's work.
And this is not just for individuals! This is also for congregations that are seeking to follow Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We offer a number of programs and various ministry expressions that God has used in many different cultural contexts to grow Christians and congregations into the dynamic of cooperating with the Holy Spirit.
We look forward to getting to know you and as we work together.
The Rev. Dr. Zeb Bradford Long
Executive Director of PRMI
