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 Forward 

At the turn of 2021, Singapore entered into Phase 3 of reopening, easing restrictions and allowing the resumption of many more activities in our nation. Many of our churches have since restarted services on-site.

Coming to church is no longer the same. Seat reservations are needed. Our preferred timings are no longer available. We can’t sing our hearts out unto the Lord. We can’t fellowship in church after services. We leave quickly in separate paths once services end.

But before we get so focused on what we can’t have – Church is FIRSTLY about God.

It’s not about returning to what we had before COVID-19. It’s about returning to the Lord’s house with reverence and honor.

Are we a people with deep conviction or are we directed by convenience? How passionate are we for the Lord? Are we willing to change our schedules and be inconvenienced to be back in the house of the Lord?
