Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the contribution of Canada's Western origins for Pentecostalism, namely the city of Winnipeg. It focus is the family of A.H. Argue beginning in the year 1907, an assessment of the first Canadian Pentecostal flagship church, Calvary Temple, the first Canadian Pentecostal Bible training institute, and finally, some observations about Pentecostal views of eschatology. Winnipeg, with its vast plains, is the geographical centre of Canada. In the early part of the twentieth century, next to Toronto and Montreal, Winnipeg quickly became the third largest city in Canada, a remarkable feat given its in hospitable climate.
