Dr. R.J. Burdette Condemns Azusa Street Mission


Dr. R.J. Burdette, pastor of Temple Baptist Church, labels what is taking place at the Azusa Street Mission as an amalgamation of African voodoo superstition and Caucasian insanity. He predicts participants will pass away like the hysterical nightmares that they are. Two major newspapers cover the story. Dr. Keyes begins a new congregation this Sunday in a rented hall. Elmer K. Fisher agrees to serve as pastor. The congregation will become known as the Upper Room Mission.
