Assemblies of God Fundamental Truths Condensed
 
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. WE BELIEVE...The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
  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, Man 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 Immersionafter 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 Salvationthat 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.
       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.
      provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins). [1
      of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]
       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 Earththat
      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!'
