This article constitutes an attempt at reflecting on the extent Pentecostal churches in Swaziland
are transforming their communities towards God’s justice mandate. The article shows that
liberation has not yet gone beyond the split between socio-political engagement and spiritual
enrichment in the liturgy for the Pentecostal churches in Swaziland, such that the fruit
of liturgy is not lived out in the community, including polity and the judicial order.
A transformative liberative pastoral care methodology is purposed for this article.
