During the 19th Century many church people became dissatisfied and uneasy. They saw the church becoming too formal and losing its power. A little group of Bible students and their teacher in a small Bible school at Topeka, Kansas read in the book of Acts how God poured out gift of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost. They believed God would give them a similar experience and began to fast and pray. they met for New Years tarrying service. A few minutes after midnight, as the new century began, a young woman began to speak with tongues as evidence that God had given her baptism of the Holy Spirit. Mighty manifestations of God's power were present among the people ( 9 Acts2:1-4; Joel 2: 28---29. ) A group of people in Los Angeles, California heard that God was again pouring out the gift of the Holy Ghost. on April9, 1906, God poured out the Holy Ghost in a marvelous way. One after another spoke in tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. The saints then met in an oldl ivery stable at 312 Azusa Street. It was an old,white washed wooden building, but God's Spirit as in the days of the Apostles. preachers and people came from far and near to inquire and pray. They, too, recieved the baptism of the Spirit went home to preach the blessed message ( matt. 28: 18--20; Mark 16:15--20 ; Luke 24 : 45--49; Acts. 1:4--11) .
