dbo:abstract
  • Pentecostal congregations in Norway (Norwegian:Pinsemenigheiter, Pinsevenner and Pinsebevegelsen) is the largest Protestant free church in Norway with a total membership at 39,590 people in 2009. The Pentecostal movement in Norway is a Christian movement. It is not a single organized unit, but consists of a community of 340 independent churches ( free churches ). The Norwegian Pentecostal movement runs humanitarian work , schools and missions in about 30 countries. The Pentecostal movement follows a biblical, radical Christian teaching. The beliefs of water baptism and baptism in the Holy Ghost are the characteristics of the Pentecostal movement, and this is perceived as the great difference between Pentecostals and, for example, Lutherans . The gatherings in the Pentecostal movement are often held in "simple" rooms with few ecclesiastical decorations. The congregation is not considered the church itself, but more the people, the Christian community. In Norway, the Gospel Centre is the largest joint initiative in the movement. The Norwegian Pentecostal movement has about 40,000 baptized members, and in addition, approx. 10,000 children by members. The number of members has remained stable over the past few years. Thomas Ball Barratt brought the Pentecostal movement to Norway in 1907 . Barratt did not want to establish a new Christian movement, but rather wanted the Christian communities to be renewed. That was not the case, and he became the founder of the Pentecostal movement in Norway. Barratt was active in both Sweden, Denmark and England, and when he visited Denmark in 1907, it became the beginning of the Danish Pentecostal movement . Barratt must be added to have been significant for the establishment of the Pentecostal movement in several European countries, perhaps especially Sweden and England . (en)
