Pentecostal World Fellowship
The Pentecostal World Fellowship is a fellowship of Pentecostal churches and denominations from across the world. Its mission is to unite and mobilize the global Spirit-filled family in completing the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
The Pentecostal World Conference is held in about every three years, and triennial in recent decades. The first conference was held in 1947 at Zürich, Switzerland. This meeting was organized by Swiss pastor Leonard Steiner, who was assisted by David du Plessis. Since then, the Conference has been conducted in various major cities around the world. In 2001, the conference in Los Angeles, California was convened in celebration of the Azusa Street Revival.
Pentecostal organizations that subscribe to the PWF Statement of Faith may apply for membership, which is subject to the approval of the Advisory Committee of the Pentecostal World Fellowship.

Statement of Faith
- We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
- We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
- We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ is absolutely essential.
- We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance according to Acts 2:4, and in the operation of the spiritual gifts and ministries.
- We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
- We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved to eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
- We believe in the church of Jesus Christ and in the unity of believers.
- We believe in the practical application of the Christian faith in every day experience and in the need to minister to people in every area of life, which includes not only the spiritual but also the social, political and physical.
