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.

THE CALL TO RETURN 

Six months of 2021 have passed. Even as the COVID-19 situation remains fluid, and resumption of  on-site services uncertain, we often hear comments, such as,

“I can worship God at home.” 
“I am still able to encounter God at home.” 
“If I missed the sermon, I could always listen to it online.” 
“Coming to church is such a hassle, I’ll just wait till things return to normal.” 

These statements ring alarm bells for me. All these mindsets and behaviors are manifestations of the depth of our relationship with God. A new danger is rearing its head.
