Apostolic Faith (Kansas) (1898 - Present) - Religious GroupReligious Family: Pentecostal
Religious Tradition: Evangelical Protestant
Description: The Apostolic Faith (Kansas) movement began in 1898 when Rev. Charles Fox Parham, previously a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, started a home for divine healing in Topeka, Kansas. After establishing a periodical called Apostolic Faith and, two years later, opening Bethel Bible College, Parham spread the message of Pentecostalism in Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Texas. However, an ensuing split with Pentecostal leadership led him to resign from his role in the Apostolic Faith movement in 1907. Followers remaining in his ministry consolidated into a fellowship in Baxter Springs, Kansas, which is also the site of the group's Bible college. Theologically, the group is similar to the Assemblies of God.
