As the Church finds her footing within the shifting culture of the day, she is challenged to adapt to a world that is searching for answers. An ecclesiology that advances the mission Dei through engaging the social justice issues within a fallen world has always been God's source for the Church's advancement. And, while her rise to many may seem to be in an adolescent stage, the essence of the Pentecostal Church has been answering the call to the missio Dei since the call was first given. The purpose of this paper is to draw from a wider historical view of the essence that has long been advancing God’s mission. This essence calls for a broader perspective of Pentecostalism, which beckons the question: Can the notion of a broader hermeneutic of Pentecostalism constructively affect modern Ecclesiology?
