Abstract

This article examines the Pentecostal reception of dispensational eschatology from the perspective of its connection to other Pentecostal theological concerns. Through an investigation of representatives from the Church of God and the Assemblies of God, it is argued (1) that early Pentecostals tended to use eschatology to articulate their own ecclesiology, and (2) that it is their ecclesiological concerns that separate Pentecostals from dispensational thought while simultaneously attracting them to it. Drawing on the Eastern Orthodox idea of sobornicity, a final section of the article is devoted to teasing out the theological concerns implicit to Pentecostal ecclesiology in order to promote further dialogue with Roman Catholicism.
