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.

Celebrate the Christ of Christmas 

Since the start of this year, the world news has been blanketed by COVID-19. Borders were closed. Planes were parked. Tourism revenues tumbled. Economies dipped into recession. All sorts of gatherings were limited to a handful of people.

Celebrations of new-borns, birthdays, marriages, and anniversaries began to take on deeper meanings with shorter guest lists and no frills. Celebrations became more intimate, richer in experience and, in a sense, went “Back to Basics” – back to the core of why we do what we do.

As Christmas approaches, the malls may not be as glitzy as in previous years. There may be fewer presents to buy and exchange as there would be fewer parties. But the meaning of Christmas doesn’t change.
