Prayer Meetings at 114 South Union Street

In mid-March of 1906, J.M. Roberts conducts a meeting in which Seymour is allowed to preach or explain his doctrine on the baptism in the Holy Spirit, while the leaders and pastors of the Holiness Church listen to his presentation, ask questions, and take a vote. They conclude that his doctorine is not consistent with the position of the Holiness Church and tell him if he is to continue as pastor of the church at 9th Street and Santa Fe Avenue, he must stop teaching it. Seymour refuses their mandate, gently but firmly. He begins an evening prayer meeting at the Lee Home at 114 South Union Street, near West 1st Street and North Bonnie Brae Street. Frank Bartleman attends at least one of these meetings.
