This essay contends that early American Pentecostalism has been shaped and defined by an underlying ideology of power, moulding its charismatic experiences and theological declarations. To demonstrate this, section one will describe how the ideology of power nourished early Pentecostal theology. Section two will offer an interpretive analysis of the social implications of power using the sociological theories of Max Weber and Emile Durkheim. By way of conclusion I suggest that the ideology of power in early Pentecostalism functions as a hermeneutical key.
