Pentecostalism is a renewal movement within Protestant Christianity. It’s an evangelical religion that focuses on changing an individual’s life through having faith on Jesus Christ. Almost all Pentecostal congregations belong to independent churches found around the world, and so have no central authoritative government. Many of these affiliate with larger pentecostal unions such as the Worldwide Pentecostal Fellowship, and the United Pentecostal Church International.
There are a few different type of pentecostal churches found around the world that hold onto practices and traditions as a result of gathering different people from a variety of Christian and cultural backgrounds. The major defining characteristic of pentecostalism is the belief in baptism by the Holy Spirit, in relation to the Day of Pentecost found in the New Testament.
Many members of the Pentecostal faith believe the Gospel is the “Good News” of God, and that salvation is found through the belief on the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, that their sins can be forgiven, and that they can reconcile with God by being baptized by water and the Holy Spirit. After being filled with the Spirit, members will continue their lives continually being filled and guided by the Spirit, and paying tithes to the Lord.
There is no official service or organization for adoption or foster care for all Pentecostal churches; however, there are a few independently operated Pentecostal adoption agencies found online and around the world.
