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.

What a year it’s been so far! Physical doors of churches have been closed. Pastors haven’t seen their congregation face-to-face for months now. Pastors have suddenly become experts in various social media platforms and streaming technology.

But for now, your pastors have been stretched in every way to continue shepherding the flock under their care.

I know of many pastors who put their call to serve and minister above the pandemic fears to continually minister to their congregation in the hospitals and at funerals…
