In the Pentecostal movement, spirituality can be defined as an effort to overcome the dichotomy between human body and spirit, theology and anthropology, the Divine Spirit and the human spirit, and God and this world. This article explores the origin and characteristics of this Pentecostal spirituality in relationship with human life-centered spiritualities such as Methodism, the holiness movement, Puritanism, and pietism. In this sense, this article identifies Pentecostal spirituality as nurturing vitality for human energetic lives. This Pentecostal spirituality as nurturing vitality is represented by three characteristics: sacramental, holistic, and relational. In other words, Pentecostal spirituality seeks the integration between divinity and humanity, one spirit-mind-body, and harmony between God and humans and among humans who are created in the image of God. This Pentecostal spirituality suggests four processes that engage church members in God's presence: conversion, the baptism of the Spirit, diverse gifts, and harmony. These four steps of Pentecostal spirituality expand the individual dimension of spirituality into the social and transformative dimensions of spirituality.
