Classical Pentecostals have not intentionally made art, aesthetics, or beauty central to their endeavors or worldview; this lacuna owes, primarily, to specific spiritual emphases. Using theological loci and then exploring some a-rational dimensions of human nature, this paper will answer the pragmatic question, ‘Why should Pentecostals embrace aesthetics?’ Finally, elements central to the Pentecostal way of being will be offered as bridges to engage aesthetes, and to produce beauty and aesthetics. Pentecostals need to avail themselves more intentionally to aesthetics as a constituent part of Christian mission.
