The 16 Fundamental Truths of the Assemblies of God
These are nonnegotiable tenets of faith that all Assemblies of God churches adhere to. This list is derived from the official
Statement of Fundamental Truths.
1] The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
2] There is only One True God - revealed in three persons... Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
3] In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son Jesus was both human and divine.
4] Though originally good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin - ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the
5] Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through 'Salvation' (accepting Christ's offer of forgiveness for sin).
[1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the A/G]
6] 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
7] 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 A/G]
8] 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] 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] 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] 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, and to build up or edify
the body of believers - the Church.
12] 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 A/G
13] 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 A/G]
14] 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. At that time many in the nation of Israel will recognize and accept Him as the Messiah, the Savior
who died for them and all mankind.
15] 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] 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!'
