Currently the Assemblies of God USA and Assembly of God organizations around the world make up the world's largest Pentecostal denomination with some 41 million members and adherents. But numbers fail to tell the real story, and statistics can never meet human needs. People who need help in coming to know God, have problems in their home, or are troubled by any of a multitude of other things that keep people from being happy and fulfilled, need someone who cares. And that's the message of our Fellowship. Because Jesus cares for people, the Assemblies of God is people who care about each other. We are committed to fulfilling a three-fold mission: 1. To introduce the lost to Christ; 2. To provide an environment for worshiping God and fellowshiping with others who hold similar values and love for God; 3. To effectively train and nurture believers.

What to Expect When Visiting an Assembly of God Church:
Variety - that's what you'll find when you visit our services. But one thing you should expect in every Assemblies of God church is a personal, uplifting worship experience. Our services are geared for participation. We typically worship as we live, with enthusiasm. Find out more.
The Assemblies of God has its roots in a religious revival that began in the late 1800s. In 1914 both preachers and laymen gathered from 20 states and several foreign countries for a "general council" in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Learn more about our history. For extensive historical and archival information, visit the Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center.
The 16 doctrinal standards of the Assembly of God can be found in our Statement of Fundamental Truths. As the need arises to make a statement on a controversial issue, leaders of the fellowship approve an official statement. These statements are better known as position papers.
More than 2.5 million people worship in over 12,000 Assemblies of God churches across the United States. Statistical data is collected each year for the ministers, ministries and missions work of the fellowship.
