The Roman Catholic Church has a Hierarchy, consisting of the Laity; Deacons, Priests, Monsignors, Bishops, Cardinals and the Pontiff (who is the first among equals).

And Pentecostal churches can have apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors & teachers.

How do Pentecostal baptisms differ from Catholic baptisms?

The trinitarian baptism is given in the ritual acclamation of, "I baptise you in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit."In my research on the Internet I have seen two different approaches to the Pentecostal baptism, first " the name of Jesus" and second, "in the Holy Spirit".In Pentecostal churches water baptism signifies that you are forgiven of your sins and are now a member of the church. It is done in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in Trinitarian Pentecostal churches and in the name of Jesusin Oneness Pentecostal churches.Water baptism in Catholic churches is by pouring or immersion, in Pentecostal churches it is only by immersion. Water baptism in Catholic churches is usually done on infants as soon as possible after birth although adults that are newly catechized converts are also baptized, in Pentecostal churches it is only done on adults that are able to give a testimony of their being "born again".Baptism in the Holy Spirit is an entirely different ceremony (it does not involve water at all, in some churches it will involve anointing with oil). Baptism in the Holy Spirit is done by the laying on of hands by the church leaders and prayers, it is then expected that the person being baptized in the Spirit will manifest the Spirit, usually by speaking in tongues. This baptism is generally unique to Pentecostal churches, although some other churches are also doing it now.Catholic AnswerA Catholic baptism is a sacrament that actually brings about what it signifies, it truly removes sins and makes one a child of God - by the power of God. A Pentecostal baptism that is done with water in the name of the Trinity and attempting to do what the Church does also is a valid baptism. Anything else called "baptism" is just an outward ceremony that is ineffective according to the Church.

List of differences between pentecostal church and Roman Catholic church?

Roman Catholic AnswerThis is rather a difficult question to answer as there are so many different kinds of Pentecostal "churches" and the differ from each other in many respects. But at the core, they are protestant in that they reject many beliefs of the Catholic church and emphasis certain things found in the Bible, which is no more than a description of nearly any protestant church. They are a breakaway from the Methodist faith so they are two generations removed from the church, at least. The priesthood, the sacramental life, the spiritual life, the complete belief system of faith in God taught by Jesus through His Church are all missing in Pentecostal churches.
