Sub-Subject Description: Pentecostals.
Pentecostalism is a movement of renewal within Protestant Christianity that places special emphasis on a direct personal experience of God through baptism with the Holy Spirit.
Pentecostals lack a central body that led the community. This movement emerged in 1901 in Kansas. Today, there are many Pentecostals archconservatives.
There are between 250 and 279 million (4 percent of the world's population) of Pentecostals in the United States, Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and South Korea. In sub-Saharan Africa is the largest percentage of Pentecostals (44%), followed by America (37%) and Asia-Pacific (16%). There are 740 recognised Pentecostal denominations.
Pentecostals believe that salvation is a gift that Christ made to the humanity when he was crucified, this salvation is achieved only by faith.
Also, they believe in Divine Holiness; even some Pentecostals claim to have been
cured using prayer and faith. They are also convinced that Christ will
return to earth.
Pentecostals say that they can speak several languages (Glossolalia) for work and grace of the Holy Spirit.
All Pentecostal should collaborate in financing his Church.
Some famous Pentecostals: Denzel Washington, Axl Rose, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Megan Fox, John Ashcroft (former Attorney General of the United States), Howard Ahmanson, Steve Strang, and Cyril Ramaphosa.
