The central beliefs of our Church and the Assemblies of God are summarized in its Statement of Fundamental Truths.

The following is a summary of these 16 non-negotiable Truths:



The Scriptures Inspired

The Bible is inspired by God and is "the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct".

The One True God

There is only one true God who exists as a Trinity.

The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God and, as the second person of the Trinity, is God.

The Fall of Man

Man was created good by God but was separated from God through original sin.

The Salvation of Man

Salvation "is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ".

The Ordinances of the Church

There are two ordinances. Believer's baptism by immersion is a declaration to the world that the believer has died and been raised together with Christ, becoming a new creation. The Lord's Supper is a symbol expressing the believer's sharing in the divine nature of Christ, a memorial of Christ's suffering and death, and a prophecy of Christ's second coming.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a separate and subsequent experience following conversion. Spirit baptism brings empowerment to live an overcoming Christian life and to be an effective witness.

The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Speaking in tongues is the initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit.


Sanctification is, " act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God." It occurs when the believer identifies with, and has faith in, Christ in his death and resurrection. It is not believed to be a "second definite work of grace" (see Finished Work), as in some other Pentecostal denominations, but is understood to be a process in that it requires continual yielding to the Holy Spirit.

The Church and Its Mission

The Church's mission is to seek and save all who are lost in sin; the Church is the Body of Christ and consists of all people who accept Christ, regardless of Christian denomination.

The Ministry

Divinely called and scripturally-ordained ministers serve the Church.

Divine Healing

Divine healing of the sick is provided for in the atonement.

The Blessed Hope

The "imminent and blessed hope" of the Church is its rapture preceding the bodily return of Christ to earth.

The Millennial Reign of Christ

The rapture of the Church will be followed by the visible return of Christ and his reign on earth for a thousand years.

The Final Judgment

There will be a final judgment and eternal damnation for the "wicked dead".

The New Heavens and the New Earth

There will be future new heavens and a new earth "wherein dwelleth righteousness".
