Assemblies of God Fundamental Truths

(Condensed)

 

These are nonnegotiable tenets of faith to which all Assemblies of God

churches adhere. This list is derived from the official "Statement of

Fundamental Truths."

 

1. WE BELIEVE...The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design

and plan for humanity.
 
2. WE BELIEVE...There is only one true God–revealed in three

persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity). 

3. WE BELIEVE...In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, Jesus

was both human and divine. 
 
4. WE BELIEVE...though originally good, humanity willingly fell to sin,

ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
 
5. WE BELIEVE...Every person can have restored fellowship with God through

'salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal

Savior). [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]
 
6. WE BELIEVE...and practice two ordinances—(1) Water baptism by

immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of

salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic

remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
 
7. WE BELIEVE...the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience

following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective

service, just as it did in New Testament times. [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of

the AG]
 
8. WE BELIEVE... The initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy

Spirit is ‘speaking in tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and

referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.
 
9. WE BELIEVE...Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a

declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of

separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become

more Christlike.
 
10. WE BELIEVE...The Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost

in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of Christ and consists of the

people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption

(regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son

Jesus Christ.
 
11. WE BELIEVE...A divinely called and scripturally ordained leadership

ministry serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under

leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him

with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers (the Church)

and to meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.
 
12. WE BELIEVE...Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today

and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross

for our sins). [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]
 
13. WE BELIEVE...in The Blessed Hope—when Jesus raptures His Church

Prior to His return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in

time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the

Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to

be with the Lord forever. [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]
 
14. WE BELIEVE...in The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with

His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for

1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel

and the establishment of universal peace.
 
15. WE BELIEVE...A Final Judgment will take place for those who have

rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal

punishment in a punishing lake of fire.
 
16. WE BELIEVE...and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New

Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted

Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial

reign on Earth. 'And so shall we forever be with the Lord!'
