Charismatic movement

The charismatic movement is the international trend of historically mainstream Christian congregations adopting beliefs and practices of Charismatic Christianity similar to Pentecostalism. Fundamental to the movement is the experience of baptism with the Holy Spirit and the use of spiritual gifts (charismata).[1]

Among Anglicans, the charismatic movement emerged in 1958; it reached Lutherans and Presbyterians in 1962.[2] Among Roman Catholics, it spread around 1967.[3] Methodists became involved in the charismatic movement in the 1970s.[4]
