As a restorationist movement, Pentecostalism has grown from humble beginnings to occupy its appropriate place in world missions. The fact that presently Pentecostalism is predominantly a Third World movement dictates that intense theological focus and energy should be expended in this area. This article attempts to outline some of the reasons for the phenomenal growth experienced by Pentecostalism but also points out some weaknesses that the movement needs to take into consideration for a more holistic and effective witness.
