...... by the time the first Pentecostal preachers arrived from the United States of America, a significant number  of Africans were already involved in the Zionist Movement. Many hypotheses have been put forward for the origin of Pentecostalism; some even believe that the Pentecostal style of worship derives from the African American culture. The holistic view adopted by the Pentecostal movement can be found in African religion’s focus on healing of the whole person, and if one looks at aspects of the African-American style of worship and service, the involvement of the whole community in worship, witnessing, narrative theology, clapping of hands, the inclusion of visions, dreams and the healing of the sick through prayer are all characteristics of African religion.
