Pentecostalism is a rich and varied Christian tradition that emphasizes the baptism of the Holy Spirit. There are several denominations within the tradition that have their own pentecostal seminaries.
Assemblies of God Seminary
The Assemblies of God (AG) is a collection of churches that are characteristically defined by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is evidenced by speaking in tongues. Because of their distinctive adherence to speaking in tongues, the AG doesn’t always interact with other Christian traditions as much as some more ecumenical denominations do. Nevertheless, there is some excellent scholarship within the AG that does interact with other denominations’ research.
The Assemblies of God has one seminary:
- Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, the official Assemblies of God seminary
