Chiese Pentecostali

Le Chiese Pentecostali nel mondo sono moltissime e non hanno un unico organismo che le rappresenti.
A titolo di esempio vedi: Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (PAW)

About (Our Preamble)

The "Pentecostal Assemblies of the World" is the continuation of the great revival that began at Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost, A.D. 33, and is founded upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ, Himself being the Chief Cornerstone.  (Acts 2:1-12; Eph. 2:19, 20)  Although the true followers have been little known, yet from that time until now, there have always been earnest contenders for the "faith which was once delivered unto the saints."

At various intervals, throughout the past centuries, the followers of the Apostolic Faith and Doctrine have become prominent through great revivals that have appeared in Great Britain, the United States, and Canada.

In the days of Tertulian (A.D. 207), Chryostom (4th Century), Christians of the 13th Century, the early Quakers, Wesley, Whitefield and Irving, the gifts and manifestations of the Apostolic Church were much in evidence as the revival spirit swept over the country.

In Kansas (1901) the revival broke forth and moved southward to Texas, being known locally only, but finally reached Los Angeles, California (1906), from whence it spread throughout the whole earth, entering into every nation under heaven, penetrating the heathen darkness of India, China, Africa, and the Isles of the Sea fulfilling the commission of our Lord, "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15-20; Matthew 28:18, 19; Luke 24:47-49; Acts 1:4-11), and proclaiming the soon coming of the Lord.

So great was the awakening, that in a few years in nearly every town of any size whatever, there were witnesses to the Pentecostal outpouring of the Spirit, (Luke 24:28; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4), and soon there began to appear in different localities, places of worship wherein the gifts of the Spirit were manifested, designating themselves by such names as: "The Apostolic Faith Mission, Pentecostal Mission, Apostolic Faith Assembly, Full Gospel Assembly or Mission, Assembly of God," etc., their own common aim being to "earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" in the days of the Apostles, taking the Bible as their creed, discipline, and rule of order and charter
