Traditionally, we have assigned our faith paradigm to the Wesleyan Quadrilateral. But Pentecostal faith is much simpler and straight forward. The Pentecostal experience simplified the way we see our faith, being less in our own reach and persecution of reality, and more in God’s control; less me-centered and more God-centered. Although it originates from Wesley’s renewal theology of sanctification, Pentecostals are not methodistic as Wesleyanism tends to be. With this in mind, I wrote Pentecostal Primitivism as a proposal for a 21st century reclaiming of the original model of Pentecostal faith, which could be described in the simplified triangular formula of power, prayer and praxis.
A Pentecostal Catechism
Introduces modern Pentecostals to the Church’s ancient tradition of catechesis. This Pentecostal Catechism is an invaluable resource that draws on Pentecostalism’s rich Wesleyan heritage. It features updated content from older Wesleyan catechisms and new material focusing on Pentecostal distinctives.
The Life and Ministry of Rev. Ivan Voronaev
Tertullian wrote that the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church, and this proves true with the life of Ivan Efimovich Voronaev. His life and ministry presented an early Pentecostal missionary paradigm that sets an example for generations to come. But this is only one side of the story. For, behind the person of the passionate orator empowered by the Holy Ghost baptism, was a life of struggle, persecution and perseverance. And there lies the very power of Pentecost that can transform the persecuted and the oppressed into preachers of the Gospel and heroes of the faith.
