Abstract

Despite the growth of Korean classical Pentecostalism and its profound impact on Korean Protestant spirituality, scholarly interest and studies are scarce and underdeveloped. Most of the studies lean towards the causes of growth of Korean Pentecostalism rather than its origins and development. Furthermore, the official and authoritative history of Korean Pentecostalism written by Korean Pentecostal bodies and ministers, has been found to include many inaccurate, misleading records. The history also tends to emphasize the contributions of Korean Trinitarian Pentecostals to the beginnings and development of Korean Pentecostalism, ignoring the contributions of both Pentecostal missionaries and Oneness Pentecostals. The collection of primary source materials, pivotal to this research, played a major part in correcting inaccuracies, clarifying ambiguities and filling gaps in existing historical accounts of early Korean Pentecostalism. This dissertation reconstructed the formative years of Korean classical Pentecostalism – including both Trinitarian and Oneness forms – in a more complete and balanced way by using historical materials, previously unknown and unavailable.
