First, I should ask this. Are Pentacostals and Charismatics synonymous? I assume there must be some difference because of the different names, but are they big in nature?

I get the impression that many in the AOG are mostly orthodox in their doctrines which separates them from the others (P & C). The reason why thinking that is that many years ago I listened often to a Dr Bronson (I believe) on Sunday mornings while getting ready for church. I could find very little to disagree with him and he seemed very reasonable in his sermons. i enjoyed listening to him. I think he preached the national sermon for the AOG at the time from its Springfield HQs. I know there are those like Swaggert in the AOG, but are there factions within the AOG that are at odds with one another?
