<title> ABSTRACT </title>This article is the substance of a lecture given in celebration of one hundred years of the modem Pentecostal Movement that traces its launching to the Azusa Revival in Los Angeles. Extended celebrations took place on the West Coast and the Annual Ellison Lecture Series at Virginia Union afforded an occasion for celebration on the East Coast. Pentecostalism is set within the larger field of twenty-first century Christianity in a manner that is not isolated from its roots or the larger theological and scholarly domain it inhabits. The United Holy Church of America is taken as a case in point. There is discussion of the progress made in the last fifty years of scholarship against the background of uninformed and hostile perspectives, and sources tainted by racial, cultural and social biases. Thoughts are shared regarding scholarship that needs to come forth from within Pentecostal circles to advance necessary perspectives and to help further establish pneumatology as critical theological discourse.
