The term "Charismatic" as I understand it, refers to a movement, not a denomination. It is a broadly defined term that refers to people who believe that the charismtic gifts are still extant, that is, speaking in tongues, interpretation of tongues, and prophecy. They also tend to get into strangeness like "slain in the Spirit" or "spiritual laughter" etc.<img src="/forum/images/graemlins/excitedgrn.gif" alt="" /> Charismatics tend to be more about emotions, feelings and outward manifestations that other Christians. The Charismatic movement cuts acress many denominations, and there is even a Charismatic movement within Roman Catholicism I am told. But AOG and Pentecostals tend to be Charismatic.

The "name it and claim it" or Word of Faith movement (Hinn, Copeland, Meyers, Osteen, et al.) that has done much harm to the church (in my opinion) was spawned by the Charismatic movement, including the AOG. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

As for the orthodoxy of the AOG, it depends on how you measure orthodoxy. The AOG is full-fledged Arminian, even holding to the most odious of Arminian tenets, that a Christain can lose their salvation.
