Chapter Summary

Historically, Pentecostals have not been entirely true to the Spirit of Pentecost with respect to women in ministry. Instead of recognizing the anthropological and ecclesiological implications that Acts 2 demands, Pentecostals have sometimes disparaged any form of change as cultural adaptation rather than theological necessity. In terms of what the four denominations can do to embody a Feminist- Pneumatological ecclesiology, all four must be willing to alter their practices. Finally, in order for the four denominations to instill within its churches the idea that ministry is the work of the whole people of God, they could hold ordination or dedication services in which new members or converts are recognized, prayed for, and commissioned for the work of the body. The way forward for Pentecostals is to own their identity and allow pneumatology to shape their theology and praxis.
