Abstract:Pentecostal doctrine, ritual, and language are examined, both singly and in relation to the church's music. Speech and song both attest to the specialized and formulaic character of Pentecostal language, and a reservoir of favorite song texts clearly facilitates verbal performance among congregants. Song texts further provide a fundamental means of communicating the tenets of church doctrine. Pentecostals often advocate the need to be "flexible" and ready to follow the Holy Ghost's direction, and various forms of musical and ritual flexibility at Alpha and Omega help to validate the congregation's belief that individuals and worship services can be "Spirit-filled.".
