The Life and Ministry of William J. Seymour is the first fully researched, major biography of the pastor of the Apostolic Faith Mission at 312 Azusa Street in Los Angeles, CA. Beginning in 1906, Seymour hosted a revival that spread the Pentecostal message around the world. In 1999 religious newswriters voted the Azusa Street revival as one of the ten most important religious events of the millennium. Seymour has been called the most influential black religious leader in American history. Born in 1870 in Centerville, Louisiana, Seymour's parents were both former slaves. His father was a union soldier in the Civil War. Seymour was reared in the poverty and oppression of the reconstruction south. Seymour left the south and lived in Missouri, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio, usually working as a hotel waiter. He was baptized as a Roman Catholic, converted in a Methodist Church, and then joined the Church of God Reformation movement. In 1905, he encountered Charles F. Parham in Houston, Texas and embraced the Pentecostal doctrine. Arriving in Los Angeles in February 1906, Seymour was locked out of the church that had called him to the city to preach. In April, a Pentecostal outpouring led to the establishment of the mission on Azusa Street. Seymour spent his later years at the church in Los Angeles and traveling to spread the message. He died in 1922. This work looks at every area of Seymour's life and gives considerable attention to the revival that made him famous. The book has over 100 illustrations, including never before published photos of the mission. - Publisher.

William J. Seymour, the son of former slaves, was the founder and pastor of the famed Azusa Street Mission in Los Angeles, California from 1906 until his death in 1922. Seymour was baptized in the Roman Catholic Church, converted in Methodism, sanctified in the Church of God Reformation movement, and then introduced to the Apostolic Faith or Pentecostal message in 1905. He took that message to Los Angeles in 1906. In addition to founding the mission at 312 Azusa Street, Seymour traveled and helped to establish and organize other missions across the country. The Doctrine and Discipline was intended to be a policy and polity guide for all the Apostolic Faith Missions under Seymour's guidance. It contains sections on doctrine, the Christian family, the church, the ministry, and other subjects. Also included are forms that Seymour used for weddings, funerals, the installation of church officers, and more. This is the only book ever written by Seymour. Published in 1915, the original book is extremely rare. This reprint makes the book available to the public for the first time in 85 years. Although Seymour's original thought is included, much of the book is a compilation from other church disciplines in the Wesleyan tradition. - Publisher.

Nearly twenty-five percent of the world's Christians count themselves among the Charismatic and Pentecostal family of Christian Movements, yet few know how Pentecostalism began. The Azusa Street Mission and Revival tells the story of the small racially-inclusive group that gathered in Los Angeles in 1906 and changed the world of Christianity. With little more than a printing press, a trolley stop and a powerful message, the revival that began at Apostolic Faith Mission on Azusa Street, rapidly crossed more than race lines-into Mexico, Western Europe, Scandinavia and West Africa-and began to change the landscape of Christianity. The complete story of the Mission has finally been recorded, with photographs, articles and testimonies.

The Azusa Street papers were published to herald the miraculous events that took place in Los Angeles. This great revival was led by a one eyed black man by the name of William Seymour who had a passion to see the bible come alive. People of all races worshipped together in the Spirit of unity. The Holy Spirit was poured out and many were saved, spoke in tongues, prophesied, healed, and sent out to the nations of the earth to spread this full gospel. This modern day pentecost would shake not only the church of the early 20th century but has touched generations of believers. GET MORE BOOKS AT REVIVALPRESS.NET
