Assembly of the Body of Christ Geneaology
This genealogy has been tweaked a few times since its first inception to make it more readable. This thanks to the input of others. It is not intended to be an all-inclusive time line but hits the major points of time only. The Azusa Street Revival caused a number of smaller groups to form but these finally divided, mostly racially, into two main streams; the Assembly of God and United Pentecostal denominations. The Sharon Orphanage associated somewhat with the Assembly of God but it was not always a close or mutual relationship. Eventually the ties ended completely and they became a new entity with the goal of reviving the Latter Rain perceived to have begun at Azusa Street in 1906. There was not a direct working relationship between the Sharon Orphanage and School and the United Pentecostal church however many of the members of Sharon Orphanage had left the United Pentecostal church to join the movement and brought many of their doctrines with them. This Latter Rain movement would eventually make its way to Seattle WA through James Watt, Derek Prince, Ern Baxter and others.
