Sixteen Fundamental Truths of the Assemblies of God

This assembly accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, adopts the Statement of Fundamental Truths of The General Council of the Assemblies of God

1:  The Scriptures Inspired

The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
(2 Timothy 3:15-171 Thessalonians 2:132 Peter 1:21)

2:  The One True God
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4Isaiah 43:10,11Matthew 28:19Luke 3:22)


3:  The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God.  The Scriptures declare:
a:  His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23Luke 1:31, 35)

b:  His sinless life (Hebrews 7:261 Peter 2:22)

c:  His miracles (Acts 2:22, 10:38)

d:  His substitutionary work on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:32 Corinthians 5:21)

e:  His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6Luke 24:391 Corinthians 15:4)

f:  His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9, 11, 2:33Philippians 2:9-11Hebrews 1:3)

4:  The Fall of Man
Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness." However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.
(Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:17Genesis 3:6Romans 5:12-19)


5:  The Salvation of Man

Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
(Luke 24:47John 3:3Romans 10:13-15Ephesians 2:8Titus 2:11, 3:5-7Romans 8:16)

6:  The Ordinances of the Church
The ordinances of the church are water baptism and Holy Communion.

a:  Baptism In Water

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19Mark 16:16Acts 10:47,48Romans 6:4)

b:  Holy Communion

The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements --bread and the fruit of the vine-- is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of his suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming, and is enjoined on all believers "till He come!"

7:  The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. (Acts 1:4, 8Luke 24:291 Corinthians 12:1-31)

a:  With the baptism in the Holy Spirit come such experiences as:
      an overflowing fullness of the Spirit, John 7:37-39Acts 4:8
      a deepened reverence for God, Acts 2:43Hebrews 12:28
      an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work, Acts 2:42
      and a more active love for Christ, for His Word and for the lost, Mark 16:20

b:  The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit
The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance. The speaking in tongues in this instance is the same in essence as the gift of tongues, but is different in purpose and use.
(Acts 2:41 Corinthians 12:4-1028)


9:  Sanctification

Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. The Scriptures teach a life of "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord." By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: "Be ye holy, for I am holy." Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by the faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit.
(1 Peter 1:15-16; Romans 12:1, 2, 6:1-11138:12131 Thessalonians 5:23Hebrews 12:14, 13:12Galatians 2:20Philippians 2:12, 13)

10:  The Church and Its Mission
The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and Church of the Firstborn, which are written in heaven.
(Ephesians 1:22-232:22Hebrews 12:23)


11:  The Ministry

A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the fourfold purpose of leading the Church in:

a:  Evangelization of the world. (Mark 16:15-20)

b:  Worship of God. (John 4:23, 24)

c:  Building a body of saints being perfected in the image of His son. (Ephesians 4:11-16)

d:  Meeting human need with ministries of love and compassion. (Psalms 112:9Galatians 2:10, 6:10James 1:27)

12:  Divine Healing
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.
(Isaiah 53:4-5Matthew 8:16, 17James 5:14-16)


13:  The Blessed Hope

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17Romans 8:23Titus 2:131 Corinthians 15:51-52)

14:  The Millennial Reign of Christ
The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel, and the establishment of universal peace.
(Zechariah 14:5Matthew 24:27, 30Revelation 19:11-141:720:1-6Isaiah 11:6-9Ezekiel 37:2122Zephaniah 3:19, 20Romans 11:26, 27Psalms 72:3-8Micah 4:3-4)


15:  The Final Judgment

There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to the everlasting punishment in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
(Matthew 25:46Revelation 19:11-142020:11-1521:8Mark 9:43-48)

16:  The New Heavens and the New Earth
"We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness."
(2 Peter 3:13Revelation 21,22)
