Presently it has recorded various social,<br>spiritual and economic growths. More so, it has<br>contributed in the building of mission schools and other<br>noticeable economic ventures that continued to change<br>the social and spiritual life of many in Nigeria. The<br>study adopted analytical, descriptive and historical<br>methods of research and brought to the fore the impacts<br>of the Pentecostal churches on the growth of<br>Christianity in Nigeria. Most of the Pentecostal<br>churches have become a stakeholder in the annals of<br>Christianity in Nigeria and beyond. Structurally, many<br>Universities, industries and other establishments have<br>been built by some of these Pentecostal churches. It<br>was however discovered that through the style of<br>worship adopted by Pentecostal churches they were<br>able to contextualise the Christian faith and thus<br>enhanced growth. Moreover, the study recommends<br>that Pentecostal churches should concentrate on the<br>message of the cross that led to the death of Jesus Christ<br>at the Cross of Calvary. In addition, a message of total<br>unity should be placed at a high premium particularly as<br>it concerns all Pentecostal churches in Nigeria.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> CHUKWUEMEKA SUNDAY GOLD Copyright (c) 2023 WEST AFRICA DYNAMIC JOURNAL OF HUMANITIES, SOCIAL AND MANAGEMENT SCIENCES AND EDUCATION: CAPE COAST, GHANA 2023-01-04 2023-01-04 EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT AND TURNOVER INTENTIONS OF THE NIGERIAN COMMERCIAL BANK WORKERS: THE MEDIATING ROLE OF ORGANIZATIONAL JUSTICE https://dymsb.com/index.php/WDJHSME/article/view/130 AKOBUNDU, Eleazar Goddey AKOBUNDU, Eleazar Goddey Osazevbaru Henry O.
