Pentecostal Distinctives

THEO 240
Systematic Theology I

This course explores what it means to be Pentecostal. This is explored historically through an examination of the Azusa Street Revival, its antecedents, and the subsequent development of fellowships such as the Assemblies of God. It is explored biblically through an examination of key pneumatological texts in Acts and 1 Corinthians and the hermeneutical debate they have provoked. It is explored morally and sympathetically through an examination of the values, goals, and spirituality of Pentecostals past and present.
