Charles Parham and Tongues


Charles Parham attends a service at First Friends Church, then, stands and tells the congregation that J. E. Sawders, Ivey Campbell, and the Azusa Street Mission have it all wrong. The real gift of tongues is never accompanied by spasm, jerks, or foolishness. It is a dignified gift. He asks them to let him show them the real “Pentecost,” but they are no longer interested. In Whittier, California, Judge Gidley dismisses the charges against Henry Prentiss.
