The following contributions relate to ongoing research on Pentecostal and Charismatic movements in Asia. At the moment the content in this section is still limited, but further research on Asian Pentecostalism and Charismatic Christianity presently conducted in the GloPent network will be included on this page in future.

Asia consists of at least three different cultural regions that have to be considered separately. However, in all parts of Asia where there is a Christian presence, the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements usually has a strong and growing influence
In South Asia Christianity is very much a minority religion with the exception of North East India, central Kerala and the south of Tamilnadu. Among South Asian Protestant Christians Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches are strong.
In East Asia Christianity is very strong in South Korea, Hongkong, and Singapore, and so is Pentecostalism. Chinese House churches are to a great extent charismatic in style.
In South East Asia Pentecostalism has a strong impact in areas where Protestant Christianity is dominant, e g., in some parts of Indonesia and Philippines. In the Philippines there is also a strong Charismatic movement within the Catholic church.
