Who are we?
The Revival Fellowship is part of a worldwide following of people from all races, walks of life, age groups and social backgrounds that share a common experience through belief in the Bible being the inspired Word of God. Through our common experience we are united and are members of God's family.
The Revival Fellowship believes that true Christianity means getting back to Bible basics. The Bible should not be added to nor subtracted from and true believers should have the same experiences and practices as the early Christian church.
The Original Church
The Christian church began almost 2,000 years ago, when as told in the Bible, the apostles were gathered together, waiting and praying for what Jesus had called 'the promise of the Father'. Moments later, they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues (Acts 2 v 1-4). This experience is known as the Pentecostal experience, as it first occured on the day of Pentecost, a Jewish festival day.
The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit experience empowered and changed the lives of the early Christians. It became an unstoppable force, with men and women willing to lay down their lives rather than deny God and turn back to their old ways. This precious gift is still being poured out on all who ask. It is the key to a new way of living, which is called 'walking in faith'.
Revival Fellowship origins
A major Pentecostal movement began in Australia just after the Second World War, with a number of new churches emerging. These churches drew large numbers of people from a wide cross section of the community - some being from other churches and many with no church background at all.
From these beginnings, assemblies in Victoria and South Australia aligned themselves in their common experience and doctrine and the church grew throughout the country.
Today, there are over 400 Revival Fellowships in 22 Countries, including New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Great Britain, USA, Europe, Brazil, Africa, Canada, Singapore, Bali and Vanuatu.
