Later, though, Charismatic denominations and independant churches came into being that took on the name 'Charismatic' but their teachings were more like Pentecostals in a lot of ways.

Today, not only American but Latin American, African, and South Korean Pentecostalism has influenced the Russian Charismatic movement.
