(p.25) 1The Emergence of a Multidimensional Global Missionary Movement
Spirit and Power

Allan H. Anderson

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that (1) the Azusa Street revival in the USA and the Mukti revival in India were part of a wider series of revivals and had equal significance in the early promotion of Pentecostal beliefs and values throughout the world; (2) existing missionary networks, especially that of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, were fundamental in spreading Pentecostalism internationally; (3) Pentecostal periodicals that were posted to missionaries in the “field” were not only significant in spreading Pentecostalism internationally but were the foundation of the meta-culture that arose in global Pentecostalism in its earliest forms; and (4) the various centers and events in early Pentecostalism were part of a series of formative stages in the emergence of a new missionary movement that took several years to take on a distinctive identity. In conclusion, Anderson argues that Pentecostalism has always been a movement with global orientation and inherent migrating tendencies that, coupled with its strong individualism, made it fundamentally a multidimensional missionary movement.
