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.

Statement of 16 Fundamental Truths

Short History:  The General Council of the Assemblies of God (USA), one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in the United States, was organized in 1914 by a broad coalition of ministers who desired to work together to fulfill common objectives, such as sending missionaries and providing fellowship and accountability. Formed in the midst of the emerging worldwide Pentecostal revival, the Assemblies of God quickly took root in other countries and formed indigenous national organizations. The Assemblies of God (USA) is a constituent member of the World Assemblies of God Fellowship, the world's largest Pentecostal fellowship.
