Based on ethnographic research, in-depth interviews, and a quantitative survey of four prominent African-led Pentecostal churches, Ugba argues that African Pentecostal immigrants rely on the transformative experience of "rebirth" to transcend their identity as a racial minority and to reconceptualize themselves as agents of social and religious change. Based on ethnographic encounters with the leaders and members of the Christ Apostolic Church, the Redeemed Christian Church of God, the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministry, and the Gospel Faith Mission, Ugba calls into question the self-identity of African immigrant Pentecostals as worldwide evangelists and agents of moral regeneration.
