What is Azusa?

The Azusa Street Mission (from The Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center)In 1906, a revival was born in meetings held in a simple building on Azusa Street in Los Angeles, California.  These meetings, which lasted about three years, were the starting point of a worldwide move of God.  The Azusa Street Revival was characterized by an intense love for God, healings and demonstrations of the Holy Spirit, and a great zeal to win lost souls to Christ.

At the Azusa Street Mission, many people were saved, healed, and filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.  Miracles regularly happened, and skeptics who came were converted by the presence and power of God.  Used by God as a point-of-contact for thousands to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, this baptism of fire spread throughout the world.  Thousands of missionaries were inspired and sent out as a result of the Azusa Street Revival.  Many Pentecostal groups trace their roots to the meetings held in the humble building at 312 Azusa Street.

We chose the domain Azusa in the desire that we too will carry the same fire and grace of the Holy Spirit through our work and witness to the world.

But Peter, taking his stand with the eleven, raised his voice and declared to them: "Men of Judea, and all you who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give heed to my words.  For these men are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is {only} the third hour of the day; but this is what was spoken of through the prophet Joel: `And it shall be in the last days,' God says, `That I will pour forth of My Spirit upon all mankind; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; Even upon My bondslaves, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit And they shall prophesy.  ...  And it shall be, that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'" Acts 2:14-18,21 (NAS)
