Abstract

Contemporary Christianity in Ghana is dominated by Pentecostal/Charismatic culture. This has attracted attention in several scholarly works and analyses have been made of the historical factors that have been responsible for this development. However, an important phase in the history of the development of the faith in Ghana - the phase of the evangelical Christian fellowships - seems to have been largely ignored. This article draws attention to the significance of that phase for Ghanaian Christianity in general and its importance as the watershed in the transition from the dominance of the old mission-instituted type of Christianity to the current dominance of the Pentecostal/Charismatic type.
