    We claimed that we had already been baptized in the Holy Spirit, which they found hard to believe because, after all, we were Catholics.” (The audience broke into great laughter, in a kind of joyful mockery of the ‘exclusive salvation’ doctrines of the Catholic Church.) He continued, “We said that we just wanted their help and advice on yielding to and using the gifts.

    With one exception, there was no Gregorian Chant. These groups within Christianity believe that miracles such as healing still happen today and tend to pray for miracles more often than the traditional denominational churches. The community has been shrinking somewhat in recent years, but remains committed and very welcoming to new members. There are Parthians among us, and Medes, and Elamites; our homes are in Mesopotamia, or Judea, or Cappadocia; in Pontus or Asia.

    At an early age he felt a calling to ministry. The history of the Pentecostal movement is history that many of us have lived through and been eyewitnesses of. The so called “Radical Reformation” includes the Mennonites and a host of other sixteenth-century spirit-filled movements, characterized by adult baptism, separation out from the state, a disciplined gathered community, and special appreciation of the Holy Spirit’s action in the believer. I can only go on the evidence, which is that the Biblical spiritual gifts have been absent from the church since the end of the apostolic period.

    Button45:hover{background-position:0px -26px;}. The movement is a reaction to churches that are dead and lifeless and boring. Rather that recommending particular “Pentecostal texts,” I would suggest a close reading of the Book of Acts on the whole. First, we have this fascinating statement from Jesus Christ that appears in all three of the synoptic gospels: Matthew 19:17: And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
