"The Oneness Pentecostals stress that God is absolutely one (Isa 44:6, 8, 24)—that is, one without distinction of persons. There are no distinctions in God’s eternal being, and the Godhead does not consist of three centers of consciousness (as some Trinitarians hold). Moreover, in Jesus dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Col 2:9)." (Oneness Pentecostal Confession. 9,34. 2007)
A recent study reveals 1 in 4 U.S. Christians to be Pentecostals.
According to the Barna Group, 29% of Christian adults aged 26-44 claim to be filled with the Holy Spirit and possess one of the charismatic gifts such as tongues, prophecy or healing. The number of Pentecostal/Charismatics is three times the number of Evangelicals in the United States and is roughly equal to the number of those attending Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Episcopal or non-denominational churches.
Pentecostals are spread across all denominational, geographic and political lines. Denominationally, 20% of Catholic adults and 26% of Protestants identify as part of the Pentecostal movement. Roughly the same percentages of Pentecostals can be found in the nation's four geographic regions. 24% of Republicans, 23% of Democrats, and 21% of Independents are Pentecostals.
David Kinnaman, President of the Barna Group, says "For millions of the youngest Christians, the charismatic, Pentecostal and Spirit-filled labels are not as divisive as they were to their parents' generation."
The modern Pentecostal movement began in the early 20th Century with a wide variety of young adults leading the way. For the future of Pentecostals, the knowledge that a similar group of young adults hold to the belief that their lives can be filled and led by the Spirit is very encouraging.
Changing the world is not a function of might or intellect. Only God's Spirit can change the world.
