Documentary screening recounts church history

The United Pentecostal Church of DeKalb will host a public screening of a new documentary film at 6 p.m. Saturday.

The film, “Landmarks on the Road Home,” chronicles Christian church history from the Roman Empire to contemporary times and explores the rise of the Pentecostal movement.

“A documentary screening is a new adventure for our church, but we feel this is a creative way to tell the story of how the Christian church has changed over the centuries,” Pastor Greg W. Davis said in a news release.

“For those interested in Christianity and who may have questions about Pentecostalism, this is a great opportunity to see the progress of history and how Pentecostals fit into that story,” he said in the release.

The 46-minute film is the result of research by leading Oneness Pentecostal historian, Robin Johnston, who examines the ongoing restoration impulse in church history. Directed by Abraham LaVoi and released by Word Aflame Productions, the 2013 film combines narration, live action, interviews and artifacts.

The United Pentecostal Church of DeKalb, 120 S. Seventh St., welcomes the public to the screening. Admission is free.
