April 25-29, 2006 Los Angeles, California, USA
This is slated to be an historic conference & Worldwide gathering of Pentecostal/Charismatic believers commemorating and celebrating the centennial anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival. The Azusa Street Revival which began in April 1906, started a major renewal of the Church which continues today and has touched as many as 600 million believers around the World. Most Pentecostal Churches/denominations and many streams of the Charismatic Movement can trace their roots back to Azusa Street.
One of the amazing characteristics of the Azusa Street Revival was the racial mixture and harmony displayed at the meetings. Beginning in April 1906, the Revival continued meeting 24/7 with as many as 1,000 in attendance, and attracting visitors from all around the World. Pastor William Joseph Seymour, the son of former slaves, founded the church, which initially began as a small poor African-American congregation. But soon the Azusa Street Church was filled with seekers from every walk of life, rich, poor and in-between. The Holy Spirit was so strong there, that some folk literally stayed for days-many came to Christ, many were healed, and thousand of lives were changed.
Hundreds of major Christian leaders will be attending the Centennial and more than a hundred thousand are expected to participate.
