This chapter discusses a contribution of Pentecostal theology to the concerns of race. Pentecostal key contributions are the practices of interraciality and multiraciality that functioned during the era of legalized racial segregation. Seeking to challenge concepts of race bound by the black and white binary, the chapter engages ecclesial relationships beyond the color line. Prior to discussing Pentecostal theologies of racial exclusion and of inclusion, definitions of race are introduced. Pentecostal theologies of inclusion receive the most attention. The chapter concludes by exploring a Pentecostal alternative to racism as a way to structure and envision a post-racist church and society. These various contexts provide content for Pentecostal theologies of race that reorder the world and society beyond racism through the principle of grace.
