Abstract
Due to a lack of understanding and appreciation of the social conscience of the early pioneers of the Pentecostal movement, and due to an inadequate theology of social concerns, the growing Pentecostal movement has failed to demonstrate a consistent and meaningful attitude toward social concerns. It is my view that a a survey of the social conscience of the early Pentecostals may inspire the movement to a greater social involvement. And the development of a Biblical and pneumatic theology of social concerns will provide an adequate basis to drive and sustain such involvement. Pentecostals must be open to other theological traditions that can contribute to this development and help them see that the power of the Holy Spirit goes beyond personal edification to community and worldwide social change.
