• charismatic-Pentecostal — A short-form reference to two related movements within the Protestant Christian church that both believe that the “gifts of the spirit”, typically inclusive of healing, speaking in tongues and prophecy, are still active in the modern church. Pentecostalism is a more formal set of denominations that emerged with similar beliefs from the late 19th century United States, while the charismatic movement began in the mid-20th century, tends to be less doctrinally rigid, has less formal oversight and has been perhaps the fastest growing Protestant movement worldwide since that time.
