Currently the Assemblies of God USA and Assemblies of God organizations around the world make up the world's largest Pentecostal denomination with nearly 67 million members and adherents, which is about one percent (1%) of the world's current population. But numbers fail to tell the real story, and statistics can never meet human needs. People who need help in coming to know God, have problems in their home, or are troubled by any of a multitude of other things that keep people from being happy and fulfilled, need someone who cares about them. And that's the message of our Fellowship. Because Jesus cares for people, the Assemblies of God is people who care about each other.
Our position in the Christian community can be classified in four categories. We are Protestant, Trinitarian, Evangelical and Pentecostal. As Protestants, we believe that each person may individually and directly commune with God based upon Jesus' death on the cross.
We are Trinitarian, as most Christian denominations are. We believe that God exists in three persons; the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit. We are distinguished as Evangelical because we place a 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 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 physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Other manifestations of the Holy Spirit embraced by the church include: messages in tongues with interpretations, prophecies, word of knowledge, and the complete offering of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit as indicated in the Bible. Among Pentecostal churches—the Assemblies of God is largest worldwide. In fact, about one percent 1% of the ENTIRE world's population are members or adherents of the Assemblies of God.
We encourage you to look around this Web site at our 16 Fundamental Truths, the Position Papers of the General Council of the Assemblies of God, our Mission and Goals Statement and especially the Directions page on how to get yourself and your family here on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM. We look forward to meeting you.
