Kingdom Now theology is a branch of Dominion Theology which has had a following within Pentecostalism. It attracted attention in the late 1980s.
Kingdom Now theology states that although Satan has been in control of the world since the Fall, God is looking for people who will help him take back dominion. Those who yield themselves to the authority of God’s apostles and prophets will take control of the kingdoms of this world, being defined as all social institutions, the “kingdom” of education, the “kingdom” of science, the “kingdom” of the arts, etc. C. Peter Wagner, the founder of the New Apostolic Reformation, writes: “The practical theology that best builds a foundation under social transformation is dominion theology, sometimes called ‘Kingdom Now.’ Its history can be traced back through R. J. Rushdoony and Abraham Kuyper to John Calvin.”
Kingdom Now theology is influenced by the Latter Rain movement, and critics have connected it to the New Apostolic Reformation, “Spiritual Warfare Christianity”, and Fivefold ministry thinking.
Kingdom Now theology should not be confused with Kingdom theology, which is related to inaugurated eschatology.
