Abstract: Nowadays, more and more is said about so called pentecostalisation of Christianity. It may be observed in the development of neopentecostal congregations and Churches and also in the influence of those communities on traditional Churches, including the Catholic Church. The value of this phenomenon is still discussed. Supporters of the accusation of pentecostalisation see it as a root of destructive tendencies for the Church and a way of blurring the differences between denominations. Opponents of the accusation see the pentecostalisation as an exchange of the spiritual gifts, although they do not negate the mistakes made in some communities. The article joins in this discussion, focusing especially on the opinions of Polish theologians. The author is convinced that openness to new aspects of spirituality and religiousness, as well as forms of existence or organization of the Church does not stand in the opposition to the Tradition. Since the idea of continuity of the Catholic identity includes preservation of the whole heritage of faith parallel to courageous finding oneself in what is new and more suitable for the contemporary people. This novelty is the crux of the Gospel and a chance for development of the Church. What we need is only a proper doctrinal foundation, the concern for holiness and the common sense.
