(p.183) 14 Pentecost!

On January 11, 1907, the General Assembly of Tomlinson’s Union Grove congregation decided to call themselves the “Church of God”. By this time, Tomlinson had accepted the principle of Pentecostal baptism and began orienting his services more specifically along “pentecostal lines”. Pentecostalism had only begun to coalesce, evolving from an amorphous subculture within holiness into a nascent movement of its own distinguished by speaking in other tongues and the meaning it attributed to that experience. Glossolalia had become the catalyst and differentiating feature of an aggressive new force in American life.
