October 15, 1900 – Bethel Bible Institute

The American Pentecostal movement experienced growth at Bethel Bible Institute in Topeka, KS on New Year’s Day of 1901 when Agnes Ozman experienced speaking in tongues.  Ozman asked Bethel’s founder, Charles Fox Parham, to lay hands on her and ask the Holy Spirit to speak through her.  Parham founded Bethel Bible Institute in a bankrupt Topeka mansion (pictured here) on October 15, 1900.
