Core Beliefs: "Two years after its founding, the AG established 16 doctrines as a standard to reach, preach, and teach its people. These doctrines became our Statement of Fundamental Truths. Four of these truths are considered our core beliefs due to the key role they play in reaching the lost and building the believer and the church both now and for the future."  These beliefs are:  Salvation, Divine Healing, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, and the Second Coming.  Evangelism and mission are central to the Assemblies of God and are credited with its strong church growth over the years.

Short History:  Begun during the Pentecostal revival movement of the early 20th century, the Assemblies of God began when 300 delegates from Pentecostal churches met in Arkansas at the first General Council.
