Chapter Summary

When Pentecostalism burst upon the world stage at the turn of the twentieth century, its leadership was convinced that the movement was participating in a revival that would renew the entire church. This chapter briefly describes the developments of this revival and set forth its major teachings before assessing whether the leadership accomplished its goal of restoring the New Testament church. The Latter Rain Revival was born in February 1948 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. The message of the Revival was complex. The doctrines were a new emphasis on existing Pentecostal teaching or a belief that had been briefly considered but subsequently rejected. As the theology of the revival unfolded, the mission of the church received increased attention. Its mission can be brought together into four categories: world evangelization, church unity, perfecting the saints, and restoring all things. The final aspect of the revival's message is divine authority.
