Who are we as the Assemblies of God?

As a movement, we trace our roots back to 312 Azusa Street. Characterized by the Pentecostal message of baptism in the Holy Spirit and the Pentecostal experience of speaking in tongues, the outpouring of the Spirit in 1906 brought about a spiritual awakening, igniting a worldwide movement.

The Assemblies of God was founded in 1914 in Hot Springs, Arkansas with 300 people at the founding convention. There are more than 67 million Assemblies of God members worldwide, making the Assemblies of God the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination.

We are planted out of that outpouring, where people hungered for the Spirit and moved in the power and gifts of the Spirit. Missionaries, sent in that same power, sowed and planted the AG churches here in Singapore in 1928.

Today AG Singapore has a total of 44 churches with more than 22,000 in total average weekly attendance, and its own Bible College.

Look Back,
Look Down,
Look Forward!

Recently my daughter flew off to Melbourne for her ministry internship. As I released her to pursue God’s plans for her life, I was amazed at how time flies. But yet, God works through time. In fact, every now and then, it’s good to Look Back to realize what God has done.

1928 may have been the year that Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse or even the year where penicillin, the antibiotic which saved millions of lives, was discovered. Yet, for our little red dot at the tip of the Malay Peninsula, it was a place that God led the Assemblies of God (AG) Missionaries to. They thought they were on a ship en route to Hong Kong, but the Holy Spirit had other plans: On April 1, 1928, Rev and Mrs Cecil M Jackson conducted an Easter service on the ship that docked on our shores and stayed as the Spirit led them.
