Pillar of Fire - Rankings by Area (Metro-Areas) [Counties] [States]

The Pillar of Fire is a Holiness church founded in 1902 by Alma White, the wife of a Methodist minister who preached in revivals and in her husband's pulpit. As her success grew, she organized her converts into independent missions, formally incorporating the missions in 1902 as the Pentecostal Union. The name Pillar of Fire was adopted in 1917, and came from the church's widely-known magazine with the same name. [View our profile of Pillar of Fire]
