From Timothy Tennent in his book, “Theology in the Context of World Christianity: How the Global Church is Influencing the Way We Think About and Discuss Theology,”
1. These believers accept the authority of Scripture, and by Western standards, hold a theology considered conservative, orthodox, and traditionalist.
2. Majority World Christians are more likely to be morally and ethically conservative.
3. These new, younger churches are more likely to be sensitive to the Christian responsibility to address issues related to poverty and social justice.
4. These younger churches are experienced at articulating the uniqueness of the gospel in the midst of religious pluralism.
5. Majority World Christians are more likely to grasp the corporate (not just individualistic) dimensions of the teachings of the New Testament.
