Abstract

Pentecostalism: How & Why It Thrived

By. Lucian Petrusan; Undergraduate of History at California Polytechnic University of Pomona

This paper explores the many reasons why, scholars and historians believe, Pentecostalism came to be and what factor enabled it to thrive the way it has. The paper attempts to pinpoint the origins of the Pentecostal Movements, while analyzing the effect key leaders and religious/cultural groups had on the over whelming success the religion experienced in the early 1900s.

Summary of research results to be presented

After one hundred years Pentecostalism is still thriving among Christians. Historians and theologians have been fascinated with the faith and attempt to understand what created it. Some look into the cultural background of the movement and accredit its success to the diversity within Pentecostalism which allowed it to spread so widely. Others believe Pentecostalism is the result of the Christian churches’ evolution. Most believer of the Pentecostal faith, however, feel that Pentecostalism’s origins are traced back directly to God and created by founders which were inspired by the Holy Spirit.
