The Assemblies of God has its roots in a religious revival
that began in the late 1800s. In 1914, both preachers and
laymen gathered from 20 states and several foreign countries
for a initial meeting in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Currently, the Assemblies of God in the United States, and
Assemblies of God organizations
around the globe make up the world's largest Pentecostal
denomination, with some 41 million members and adherents in
over 190 countries. More than 2.5 million people worship in
over 12,000 Assemblies of God churches across the United
The Assemblies of God is a Protestant fellowship. While we are
less formal in our worship to God than many protestant
denominations, the Assemblies of God is very similar in faith,
with the exception of its Pentecostal doctrine.
Like most Christian groups, the Assemblies of God believes God
exists in Three Persons–the Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy
Spirit. We believe all Three are alive and at work today. We
also believe this God of Three Persons is the One and Only
The Assemblies of God is classified as Evangelical. The church
is distinguished as such because it places high priority on
the inspiration of Scripture and its mission to bring the lost
to a saving knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ.
The most definitive identification of the Assemblies of God is
that we are Pentecostal. Just as it was founded in 1914, the
Fellowship remains a full-Gospel church–one where the fullness
of the Holy Spirit is welcomed, nurtured, and taught. This
includes speaking in tongues as the initial evidence of the
indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
We are committed to fulfilling a three-fold mission:
introduce the lost to Christ;
2. To provide an environment for worshiping God and
3. To effectively train and nurture believers.
