  Assemblies of God Statement of Fundamental Truths

The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. Our doctrinal statement is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us (i.e., that we all speak the same thing, 1 Corinthians 1:10; Acts 2:42).The phraseology employed in this statement is not inspired or contended for, but the truth set forth is held to be essential to a full-gospel ministry. No claim is made that it contains all biblical truth, only that it covers our need as to these fundamental doctrines.

  • The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and conduct  (2 Timothy 3:16)
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit  (2 Corinthians 13:14)
  • Mankind was created good and upright.   However, mankind by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.  (Genesis 1:26-3:24)
  • The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right a hand of the Father, and in his personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years (Matthew 16:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
  • The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the  blood of Christ (1 Peter 1:18-21)

  • The baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it (Acts 2:39)
  • The church’s mission includes proclaiming the gospel, gathering for worship, and following Jesus together that we may mature in him (Mathew 28:18-20).
  • A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the threefold purpose of leading the Church in its mission (Ephesians 4:11-16).
  • In the blessed hope at Christ’s coming (Titus 2:13)
  • The visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years (Revelation 20:1-6).
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting punishment (John 5:28-29).
