Federation of Pentecostal Churches (Germany)
The Federation of Pentecostal Churches (German: Bund Freikirchlicher Pfingstgemeinden, abbreviated BFP) is a Pentecostal Christian denomination in Germany. With 46,226 members in 2011, it is the largest Pentecostal church in Germany and is the German branch of the Assemblies of God. Pentecostalism first came to Germany in 1906-1908, but the BFP was founded in 1954 as the Association of Christian Churches in Germany (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Christengemeinden in Deutschland, ACD). It changed to its current name in 1982. There is a seminary of the German Federation of Pentecostal Churches in the town of Erzhausen: Bible School Beröa also called Theologisches Seminar Beröa.
