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.

Pressing Through the Waters 

A while ago, the water pipe in my house burst and my house was flooded. Furniture got wet and things in the house were messed up as the water kept gushing out. I was drenched as I tried to fix the burst pipe. Thankfully, it was only a pipe.

At water theme parks are wave pools where people sit on large floats and subject themselves to the thrill of being carried by the waves. The fastest way to move in the waters is to go with the flow. To experience the water rides, people have to go through the waters. You can’t stay out of the pool and experience the flow.

Ezekiel 47 describes repeatedly how God leads us through the waters. In verse 3, “led me through water that was ankle-deep.”, in verse 4, “led me through water that was knee-deep”, and “led me through water that was up to the waist.”

There are powerful truths that we can glean from this.
