The Difference

between Pentecostals and Roman Catholics:

For the record, we do believe that God, through His Holy Spirit, continues to speak to His church, but we do not believe that these revelations—whether prophecies, words of knowledge or wisdom interpreted messages in tongues, or other things—rise to the level of Scripture. The canon—the 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament—is the yardstick by which all putative revelations must be judged.

  1. Christianity Today recently identified the Assemblies of God the fourth largest Christian communion—after Catholics, Orthodox, and Anglicans—in a little over a century. The World Assemblies of God Fellowship now numbers in excess of 360,000 churches and 67.5 million believers.

    Whoa. Ten times more churches than some sects have believers. Certainly affects what we should think of as “Protestantism.”
