Do you agree with the following statement:

Pentecostalism is quintessentially American. It began (although there were pre-shocks for centuries) in the multi-ethnic Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles, Calif. It is arguably our most influential export of any kind.

It is taken from DAVID HOUSHOLDER’s 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Pentecostals

That’s part of the problem because Jesus and the Holy Spirit are not American they are part of the Godhead which is Yahweh God who is not American. many times what’s been exported has had a cultural baggage to it when father God wants us to just connect with him in whatever culture we reside.
